    The International Criminal Police Organization (ICPO) does not comment on the investigation of terror attacks in Paris and manhunt for one of the suspects by the French police.

    PARIS (Sputnik) — Shortly following the attacks, the Interpol issued a statement, expressing solidarity with France and guaranteeing utmost support for Paris. The ICPO also established a working group to deal with the circumstances of the Paris attacks.

    "We do not provide any additional comments," an Interpol representative told RIA Novosti.

    On Friday night, eight extremists wearing explosive belts attacked several venues across Paris, killing 130 people and injuring over 350 at restaurants, the Bataclan concert hall and in the vicinity of the Stade de France stadium. Responsibility for the attacks was claimed by the Islamic State militant group, operating in Syria and Iraq.

    On Sunday, the French police revealed a photo of a fugitive in the Paris attacks, saying the suspect is on the run and poses threat to anyone around. The law enforcement identified the suspect as 26-year-old Brussels-born Salah Abdeslam, who is one of three brothers believed to be involved in the heinous attacks in the French capital.
