French leader: We will not "cede to fear"

PARIS -- President Francois Hollande said Wednesday that France would not "cede to fear" and he urged his compatriots to go back out to cafes and museums and live life to its fullest.

"What would our country be without its cafes, concerts, sport events, museums?" Hollande asked as he spoke to mayors from around the country after the country's deadliest violence in decades last week.

The French government said Wednesday that all 129 people killed in the attacks Friday on a Paris stadium, a concert hall and cafes had been identified.

Police raid brings gunfire, explosions to Paris suburb

Dozens of heavily-armed French police in full tactical gear raided an apartment early Wednesday morning believing they had the alleged planner of the Paris carnage cornered there with five other suspects.

A total of seven people were arrested in the raid and two killed, including a female suspect who blew herself up with a suicide belt as police entered the building.

It remained unclear, however, whether suspected attacks mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a well-known Beligan ISIS operative, was actually in the building during the raid or if he had been killed or apprehended during the seven-hour operation that drove neighbors under their beds to hide in fear.

A statement released after Wednesday's Cabinet meeting said about 100 families had come to see the bodies.

At least 350 people were also wounded in the Paris attacks, with scores of people still critically injured. The death toll may still rise if some of the wounded do not recover.

The French leader said "life must resume in full," and promised extra security to ensure that museums can reopen and "our tourists can be welcomed."

Hollande also said any places where people were "glorifying" terrorism would be shut down.

A bill to extend France's state of emergency for three months includes a measure that enables authorities to close "any association or gathering" -- which notably includes mosques and community groups -- that would encourage people to carry out terrorist acts.

The bill is to be debated by both houses of Parliament on Thursday and Friday and expected to be voted on by the end of the week.
