Cairo: A video published on Sunday by the media centre of Islamic State claimed to show images and last statements of nine of the people who took part in the Paris attacks that killed 130 people on 13 November.

Reuters could not independently verify the authenticity of the footage.

The French foreign ministry declined to comment on it. There was no immediate comment from the Prime Minister’s office, and Reuters was not immediately able to reach officials at the interior ministry.

The video was uploaded to Islamic State’s official Telegram channel and shows some of the attackers wearing camouflage fatigues in a desert location, before the time of the Paris attacks.

“These are the last messages of the nine lions of the caliphate who were mobilised from their lairs to make a whole country, France, get down on its knees," a narrator in the video says. Reuters
