Paris (AFP) - French President Francois Hollande on Saturday declared three days of national mourning following the deadly Paris attacks.

He called the three-day observance after what he called acts of "absolute barbarity" late Friday that killed at least 128 people and wounded more than 200 others, many of them seriously.
