"France is at war. We are not in a war of civilizations, because these assassins don't represent one. We are in a war against jihadist terrorism, which threatens the entire world...The faces of the dead, of the injured, of their families, haunt my mind. This memory feeds my unwavering resolution and yours too." - French President Francois Hollande on 16 November 2015 to a joint session of Parliament following the deadly 13 November attacks in Paris that killed 132 and wounded hundreds more.
