As Search Goes On, French Premier Declares War on Radical Islam

THE NEW YORK TIMES: PARIS — Prime Minister Manuel Valls declared Saturday that France was at war with radical Islam, as new details emerged of the harrowing sieges that led to the deaths of three gunmen and four hostages the day before, and as the authorities mounted a frantic hunt for a suspected accomplice who remained on the loose.

“It is a war against terrorism, against jihadism, against radical Islam, against everything that is aimed at breaking fraternity, freedom, solidarity,” Mr. Valls said during a speech in Evry, south of Paris. » | Dan Bilefsky and Maïa de la Baume | Saturday, January 10, 2015
