Paris attacks left 129 people dead and 352 wounded, including 99 who are in a very serious condition. Two of seven terrorists have been named.

Three teams of terrorists staged coordinated attacks at six locations throughout Paris late Friday, including a concert hall, the Stade de France and at least two restaurants, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said Saturday.

Molins said seven terrorists were killed, one fewer than the number ISIS claimed were involved.

A huge manhunt is now under way for surviving members and accomplices of the Islamist group that killed 129 people in Paris on Friday night.

Police have named Brussels-born Salah Abdeslam, 26, as a key suspect. He was reportedly stopped by officers in the wake of the attacks – but then let go.

A worldwide manhunt is underway for Belgian-born French national Salah Abdeslam, who is suspected of being involved in the attacks. French police released his photo and warned that he is “dangerous.” Sources told CNN that he was stopped and questioned by French police shortly after the attacks.

The French Air Force carried out bombing missions over Raqqa early Monday. Targets included a command center, recruitment center, ammunition storage base and a training camp. There’s been no information on casualties or any damage assessments.

Prior to Friday’s attacks, Iraq shared intelligence that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had ordered an attack on countries fighting against ISIS, though there were no specifics about when or where the attack would take place, a senior Iraqi official has said.
