France: Paris attacks: death toll rises to 132

PARIS (AA): The death toll from the deadly gun-and-bomb attacks in Paris has risen to 132 after three of the 352 injured people succumbed to their wounds Sunday, said medical authorities.

The Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), Paris’ public hospital system, said in a statement that “three of  80 injured people admitted Friday in absolute urgency in Parisian hospitals died”.

AP-HP said “42 were still in intensive care Sunday afternoon.”

The medical authorities added 415 people in total were admitted to Paris hospitals since the attack “including people suffering psychological shock and came spontaneously in hospitals”.

Meanwhile, French authorities continue a manhunt for one of three brothers involved in the attacks.

“One died in the attacks [a suicide bomber], the second is in custody in Belgium — it still unknown if he participated in the attacks or not. Investigators have no news about the third brother. It could be one of the suicide bombers or [he can be] on the run,” reported Le Figaro.

French police issued an arrest warrant for the man identified as Abdeslam Salah, a 26-year-old Belgian national suspected of being involved in the Paris attacks, also releasing a photo of him, urging people to stay away and notify the police if seen.

On Sunday evening, three terror suspects have been officially named by French police as Salah Abdeslam, who is on the run, his brother Ibrahim Abdeslam, believed to be one of the suicide bombers  and Omar Ismail Mostefai.

Mostefai, 29, was identified earlier by French media. He is also one of the suicide attackers. Six people of his family including his brother, father and sister-in-law, are in police custody in France.

Meanwhile, the French capital witnessed mass panic in different parts of Paris over false alerts Sunday evening.

Hundreds of people gathered for a vigil at Place de la Republique and in other spots in central Paris to pay tribute to the victims.

TV pictures showed scores dispersing suddenly and fleeing the vigil at Place de la Republique.

Police later said it was a false alarm.
