London: An Islamic State statement on Saturday claimed responsibility for the Friday night Paris attacks that claimed 127 lives, as reported by media.

The group in a statement in Arabic and French called Paris the “capital of abominations and perversion” and said the attacks were carried out by eight “brothers” armed with guns and wearing suicide vests.

It singled out the football match and rock concert, calling it “perverse”, suggesting the targets were deliberately chosen.

It blamed France for a “crusade” against Muslims, both in its military operations against IS in Syria and Iraq and laws at home and threatened more attacks in the future.
