French President Francoise Hollande said the attack was undeniably of a terrorist nature. The act was a "monstrous" one, he said, and the victims included "many children."
Hollande called the latest carnage an attack on liberty by fanatics who despised human rights, but said that France would continue its military operations in Syria and Iraq.
