German police make two more arrests linked to #ParisAttacks

This brings to 7 the total number of arrests made today in connection with last Friday's deadly events.

People spend a moment mourning the dead at the site of the attack at the Cafe Belle Equipe on rue de Charonne, prior to going to work early on 16 November 2015 in Paris, three days after the terrorist attacks that left over 130 dead and more than 350 injured. Picture: AFP.

BERLIN - German police arrested two more people on Tuesday in connection with the Paris attacks, bringing to seven the total number of arrests linked to Friday's deadly events.

The arrests were made in the town of Alsdorf, in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia near the Dutch border, police said.

It was reported earlier today that three people were arrested in Germany for possible connections to the deadly Paris attacks.

The trio were detailed this afternoon in Alsdorf, near the country's border with Belgium.

At the same time, German police also confirmed they arrested two more suspects linked to the deadly Paris attacks.

German police have not divulged any further details around the arrests.

French officials have meanwhile named six people they believe carried out the Paris attacks.

Around 130 people were killed on Friday night in six attacks in the capital.

The Islamic State (Isis) has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

'ISIS IS DISGUSTING COWARDS '

French President Francois Hollande has called Isis disgusting cowards, saying France will not stop until the terror group is destroyed.

He says France has increased its airstrikes on Isis targets in Syria.

Added to this, French, Belgian and German police have made a number of arrests over the past 48 hours, conducting 128 raids as the search continues for those who killed about 130 people in Paris last Friday night.

Speaking at the UNESCO conference in the French capital, Hollande said the attacks had been centred on the heart of his country.

"The Jihadists wanted to strike us at where we can share, exchange, laugh and enjoy ourselves."

He says Isis is the enemy of all races and cultures.

"These killers, such cowardly killers, thought they could attack people of all ages, all nationalities and all social classes."

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister David Cameron has asked lawmakers to draft a comprehensive anti-Isis strategy.

The US and France have also agreed to step up co-operation.

US STARTS OPERATION WITH TURKEY ON SECURING SYRIA

While the search continues for those behind the deadly Paris attacks US Secretary of State John Kerry has announced his country is starting an operation with Turkey to finish securing the northern Syrian border.

He's confirmed that 75 percent of the border of northern Syria has now been shut off and an agreement has been reached to shut off the other remaining 98 kilometres.

Kerry arrived in Paris yesterday, to pay his respects to the victims of Friday's attacks.
