Three terrorist teams planned and carried out the horrific attacks that killed 129 people in Paris.

Three terrorist teams planned and carried out the horrific attacks that killed 129 people in Paris.

A press conference held by Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins was told tonight the sophisticated attacks on the French capital were led by three teams who used explosive belts and AK47 guns to massacre innocent people out enjoying Friday evening in the city.

Seven terrorists died - four of those were suicide bombers.

It has also emerged three people have been arrested by Belgian police in connection with last night’s bloodbath.

One of the Bataclan attackers, which is where the majority of lives were lost, was a Parisian man known to the authorities for committing crime, but there is no evidence to suggest he had been “brainwashed” by extremists Mr Molins said.

The death toll currently stands at 129, but it is expected to rise. Mr Molins said 352 people were injured and 99 remain in a critical condition after the events which French president Francois Hollande has described as an “act of war”.
