Mexico’s government says two of its citizens were among the people killed in Paris.
The Foreign Ministry has not said where the women were killed in Friday night’s attacks across the French capital. It also hasn’t released the women’s identities, but says one had dual Mexican-U.S. citizenship and the other held Mexican-Spanish citizenship.
The ministry previously reported that a Mexican man was wounded at one of the Paris restaurants attacked. It says that man was operated on Saturday morning “satisfactorily.” It says he holds dual Mexican-Austrian citizenship.
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls is vowing to “destroy” those behind the rampage across Paris that killed at least 129 people and wounded hundreds of others.
Speaking late Saturday on French television TF1, Valls declared “we are at war, and because we are at war we are taking exceptional measures.”
France has put thousands of soldiers onto the streets to reinforce police and other security personal in the wake of the country’s worst-ever terror attack.
Valls says “we will strike this enemy to destroy him. In France and in Europe, we’ll chase the authors of this act, and also in Syria and Iraq. We will win this war.”
