France has said Europe must "wake up" to terror after the attacks on Paris, which killed 129 people. Over 350 were injured and many are still in hospital. A politician told reporters: "It is urgent that Europe wakes up." He said it was too easy for terrorists to move around Europe. A Paris attacker entered Europe through Greece.

A French ambassador said terrorism was an important issue. More countries are joining the fight against terrorism. Britain wants to take part in air strikes in Syria. It will soon vote on this. Russia is also very active. It is carrying out air strikes in Syria after a bomb was put on a Russian plane in Egypt. It killed 224 people.
