France has said European countries must "wake up" to terror after the attacks on Paris, which killed 129 people. Over 350 were injured and dozens are still in hospital in serious condition. Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told reporters: "It is urgent that Europe wakes up, organises itself and defends itself against the terrorist threat." He said it was too easy for terrorists to move around Europe. One of the Paris attackers entered Europe through Greece.

A French ambassador said: "Terrorism is an important issue. It needs to be addressed. We are currently raising this issue at the UN Security Council." More countries are joining the fight against terrorism. Britain wants to take part in air strikes in Syria. British politicians will soon vote on this. Russia is also very active in Syria. It is carrying out air strikes after the bombing of a Russian plane over Egypt that killed 224 people.
