Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey shares the pain felt by France, as a nation that has suffered terror attacks.

The Turkish leader, who is scheduled to host Mr Hollande and other G20 leaders at a summit on Sunday, said the attacks were aimed at the two countries' "peace and security", and called for unity against all terror groups.

Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull extended Australia's deep sympathy to the people of France.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this terrible time," Mr Turnbull said in a statement from Berlin. "But our solidarity is with them too. When the French people left the stadium after that shocking attack, they were not cowed. They sang their national anthem proudly and that is how all free people should respond to these assaults.

"In France, and Australia, all around the world, we stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of France and with all free peoples in the battle against terrorism."

The Australian government said a 19-year-old Australian woman had been injured in the attacks.

Afghan president Ashraf Ghani said in a tweet to Mr Hollande: "I sympathise with you and your people; Afghanistan stands with France with resolve to tackle terrorism as a common enemy."

A statement from Mr Ghani's office quoted him as saying: "The brutal attacks in Paris prove that global terrorism does not recognise borders.

"Afghan people have for many years been the victims of terrorist attacks. They feel the pain of Parisians, and share the grief of the victims' families. The people of Afghanistan stand with France on this terrible day. Terrorism is a serious threat to the entire world and we are united in the struggle."

Isis claims responsibility

Isis has claimed responsibility for the attacks and said France would remain at the "top of the list" of its targets.

An online statement said eight militants armed with explosive belts and automatic weapons attacked carefully chosen targets in the "capital of adultery and vice", including the national stadium, where France were playing Germany, and the Bataclan concert hall, where an American rock band were playing and "hundreds of apostates were attending an adulterous party".

The statement said France and its supporters "will remain at the top of the list of targets of the Islamic State".

"The stench of death will not leave their noses as long as they remain at the forefront of the Crusaders' campaign, dare to curse our prophet, boast of a war on Islam in France, and strike Muslims in the lands of the caliphate with warplanes that were of no use to them in the streets and rotten alleys of Paris," it said.

France is part of the US-led coalition that has been striking the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq for the past year, and has been targeted by jihadists in the past because of its perceived tolerance of speech deemed offensive to Islam.

The claim was made in statements in Arabic and French released online and circulated by supporters of the group. Supporters also circulated an audio version read by an unidentified speaker whose voice strongly resembled that of an announcer for the IS radio station Al-Bayan. It was not immediately possible to confirm the authenticity of the statements, but they bore the extremists' logo and resembled previous IS statements.

The statements did not provide the nationalities or other information about the attackers, but a Syrian passport was found on the body of one of the suicide bombers who targeted the Stade de France stadium

French President Francois Hollande pledged a "pitiless" response to terrorism, and vowed to strike back after the worst attacks in France since the Second World War

Mr Hollande said after an emergency security meeting that the death toll in Paris had risen to 127 in a string of near-simultaneous attacks which he said were an "act of war" orchestrated by IS.

He declared three days of national mourning and put the nation's security at its highest level after the assault on the Bacalan concert hall, the Stade de France and cafes.

Mr Hollande also declared a state of emergency - the first such move in a decade - and ordered 1,500 additional troops to be deployed to guard official buildings and religious sites, while controls have been re-imposed at the country's borders.

He said the attacks were "committed by a terrorist army, the Islamic State group, a jihadist army, against France, against the values that we defend everywhere in the world, against what we are: a free country that means something to the whole planet".

Mr Hollande added that France "will be merciless toward the barbarians of Islamic State group", and "will act by all means anywhere, inside or outside the country".

Paris shuts attractions including the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre

French authorities have closed the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre museum and other leading tourist sites in Paris until further notice after the deadly terror attacks.

A Louvre spokeswoman said the museum opened as normal on Saturday with enhanced security, but was ordered closed by the Culture Ministry after President Francois Hollande called for national day of mourning.

Isabelle Esnous, a spokeswoman for the Eiffel Tower, said the monument did not open as a security precaution.

The Culture Ministry said "public cultural sites" were closed in the region, without specifying.

Disneyland Paris was also closed to the public in a highly unusual move because of the string of attack.

The theme park east of the capital, one of Europe's leading tourist attractions, said in a statement that it decided not to open on Saturday "in light of the recent tragic events in France and in support of our community and the victims of these horrendous attacks".

About 14 million people visited Disneyland Paris last year.
