Islamic State (IS) has released a video, apparently showing nine of the suspected Paris gunmen before they carried out the 13 November attack.
The footage shows some of the men beheading prisoners and conducting military training in the Middle East.

It also shows locations that were attacked in the French capital, leaving 130 people dead. The video ends with images of UK MPs backing air strikes against IS in Syria.

The footage was released through the media channel of IS, Site monitoring group said. According to the Site, the video was filmed in Raqqa, the de facto capital of IS, before the Paris attacks.

One of the images shows a man closely resembling Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the suspected ringleader of the attacks. Abaaoud is a Belgian national and was killed in a police raid on a flat in Saint-Denis, near Paris, days after the attacks. Nine suspected attackers died on 13 November or in the days after, and two more are on the run.

France’s foreign ministry has declined to comment on the video.
