France dispatched warplanes to bomb Islamic State’s nerve center in Raqqa, Syria, and police raided suspects in five French towns after Europe’s worst terror attack in a decade.
Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told France 2 television that the extremist group, which has also claimed responsibility for blasts in Beirut and the downing of a Russian passenger jet in Egypt, is urging people based in Belgium “to act on French territory and in other European cities.”
The deadly violence in Paris on Friday is the latest in a series of attacks with strong links to Belgium, adding to mounting evidence the country has become one of the main havens for radicalized young men intent on terrorizing Europe.
