More than 8 terrorists carried out multiple terror attacks in Paris

French security forces on Sunday found an abandoned vehicle with three AK-47 automatic rifles in the back seat that was apparently used by the terrorists who attacked Paris on Friday night. Five full magazines and 11 empty ones were found alongside the weapons, a French newspaper said. The black Seat Léon car was discovered in Montreuil, a suburb of the capital. According to the official figures, 129 people were killed and 352 were injured in the coordinated assault, with 99 in critical condition.   
DEBKAfile's counterterrorism sources: It is assumed that the terrorists used the vehicle, but then dumped it to mislead the police pursuit about the direction of their escape. Also, the fact that there were three rifles indicates that more than eight terrorists carried out the attacks, as the French authorities claim.
On Sunday evening, French officials warned the public that one or more terrorist who is armed and dangerous is still at large.
