French President Francois Hollande has said France will be pursuing a Security Council resolution, and has vowed to forge a united coalition capable of defeating the jihadis at home and abroad.

Russia this week has said it and France are now coordinating military efforts against IS in Syria.

Belgian Justice Minister Koen Geens says he cannot confirm the suspected mastermind of the Paris attacks was among those killed in a raid against an apartment north of the French capital.

He says Belgian Abdelhamid Abaaoud was "not among those arrested or those who have been identified."

French officials previously said Abaaoud was not among those arrested in Wednesday's raid in Saint-Denis, but didn't eliminate the possibility that he was killed, saying the identities of those slain are still being investigated.

The Belgian minister spoke after a cabinet meeting late Wednesday which was assessing what measures should be taken to counter the increased threat of terrorism.

He called Wednesday's raid a "big breakthrough" because it shows law enforcement officials can track down suspects.

A Paris man's open letter to the killers of his wife is moving people to tears as it spreads on social media and television.

Antoine Leiris' wife, Helene Muyal-Leiris, was among the 89 slain in the Bataclan concert hall in Paris on Friday. His original letter in French on his Facebook page has been shared more than 190,000 times since Monday and has been translated into several other languages.

He tells the attackers that he will not give them the gift of hating them, saying: "Responding to hatred with anger would be to give in to the same ignorance that has made you what you are."

"I saw her this morning. She was just as beautiful as she was when she left home Friday evening, as beautiful as when I fell madly in love with her more than 12 years ago," he says.

Leiris adds he is devastated with grief over the loss of his 35-year-old wife, but says it will be a short-term grief.

"I know that she will join us every day and that we will find each other again in a paradise of free souls, which you will never have access to."

The conclusion emphasizes Leiris' determination to ensure he raises the couple's 17-month-old son "happy and free. Because no, you will not have his hatred either."

Police have banned public demonstrations until Nov. 22 in Paris and surrounding towns in the latest utilization of expanded security measures permitted under the state of emergency installed following last week's bloody attacks.

The ban on marches and other demonstrations on public squares and roadways enters into effect midnight Wednesday.

A debate will start Thursday in the lower house of France's parliament ahead of a vote on whether the state of emergency should be extended for three months.

8:50 p.m.

The Paris prosecutor has backed away from a statement his office had made Wednesday morning that indicated a woman holed up in the apartment had died during a raid north of the French capital after setting off her explosive vest.

At the news conference, Francois Molins explained that "this point needs to be verified by an analysis of the body and human remains as well as by all the forensic police operations that have to be carried out."

At least two people were killed in Wednesday's raid in Saint-Denis and eight people arrested.

8:30 p.m.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius says two planned marches scheduled to take place during the upcoming Paris climate talks will be banned for security reasons following last week's attacks across the French capital.

In a statement Wednesday, Fabius said the government has decided not to authorize climate marches scheduled in Paris and other French cities on Nov. 29 and Dec. 12 in order "to avoid any extra risk."

Friday's attacks in Paris killed 129 people.

Authorities say the suspected ringleader of the Paris attack and a fugitive wanted over the deadly rampage were not arrested in a massive police raid north of the capital, but could be among those killed.

Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins says that authorities know that suspected ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud or wanted fugitive Salah Abdeslam were not among those detained in the police operation Wednesday.

Molins did not eliminate the possibility that they were killed, saying the identities of those slain in the raid in the town of Saint-Denis is still being investigated.

He said at least two people died in the raid, but that he wasn't in "a position to give a precise and definitive number for the people who died."

Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins says police fired some 5,000 rounds during an hour-long exchange of fire at a hideout where a terrorist cell had holed up north of the capital.

Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins says a terror cell neutralized in a massive police raid was ready to act.

Across Europe, the divide is deepening between those who see the massive migrant flow as a potential security threat that should be shut down and those who note that many refugees are the victims of Islamic extremism.

In Poland, the town of Szamocin, which had defied an anti-migrant mood across the country to welcome Syrian refugees, has now retracted the invitation. Mayor Eugeniusz Kucner said on his town's website that "despite our sympathy for Syrian refugees, we cannot exclude that among them there will be terrorists."

A new anti-migrant government in Poland, which took office this week, is also deeply unhappy about the previous government's decision to accept 7,000 refugees as part of a European plan. New government officials vow that asylum applications will be scrutinized carefully.

Italian Premier Matteo Renzi views Russia's push for a "grand coalition" to defeat the Islamic State group as a "a very right proposal."

Renzi said he shares Russian President Vladimir Putin's urging that what's needed to combat IS is a grand coalition of countries, like one that came together in World War II to defeat Hitler.

In an interview Wednesday on Italy's Sky TG24 TV, Renzi said bringing Russia into such an international coalition "would be very positive."

Putin on Tuesday ordered a Russian missile cruiser in the Mediterranean to start cooperating with the French military on operations in Syria against IS.

The band, which released a new album last month, were on a European tour when the attacks occurred. They said all shows are on hold for now.

The magazine, released Wednesday, included the threat: "The Islamic State will continue to stand firm in the face of their transgressions and retaliate with fire and bloodshed in revenge for the honor of the Prophet (Muhammad) and the multitudes killed and injured in crusader airstrikes."

The magazine also included a claim that the group killed a Chinese and a Norwegian hostage and photographs of the bomb that it said brought down a Russian airliner over Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Oct. 31.

Jawad Bendaoud, who was detained during Wednesday's raid on suspects linked to last week's Paris attacks, spoke to BFMTV as he was being led away by police.

Speaking outside the building in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis, he says "I learned it was at my place, and the individuals barricaded themselves in my place ...I didn't know they're terrorists."

He said someone had "asked me to put some people up for two, three days, and I provided this service."

He says "I don't know where they come from ... If I would have known, I wouldn't have let them stay."

Bendaoud's lawyer confirmed the man in the footage was his client, who was sentenced to eight years in prison for killing his best friend in a 2006 fight.
