    According to media reports, at least three arrests have been made in anti-terrorist raids conducted across France three days after deadly coordinated attacks in Paris.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) At least three arrests have been made in anti-terrorist raids conducted across France three days after deadly coordinated attacks in Paris left 132 dead and over 350 injured, 99 critically, local media reported Monday.

    "Toulouse: At least 3 people have been placed in custody after a raid conducted within the framework of the fight against terrorism," the i-Tele broadcaster tweeted.

    France remains in a state of emergency, with reports saying that the emergency may not be lifted for three months.

    Other local media outlets reported several arrests made in the southeast city of Grenoble.

    Anti-terror operations were conducted in the Paris suburb of Bobigny, the northern port town of Calais the town of Jeumont on the Belgian border, and other locations.

    A search warrant has been issued for Salah Abdeslam, said to be one of the perpetrators of the attacks.  The suspect is thought to be one of three brothers who rented a vehicle used to transport the gun-wielding suicide bombers in the late Friday attack on a concert hall in which the majority of victims were killed.

    The Friday violence is being reported as the largest attack on the French capital since World War II.
