French President Francois Hollande on Friday called for a “firm” and “collective” international response to terrorism, following last week's attacks in Paris that claimed 17 lives.
Speaking to Paris-based ambassadors from around the world, Hollande said: "Our response has to be firm in the face of terrorism. It can only be collective."
