An aide to French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said one of the wounded had succumbed to their injuries, but other details about the victim were not immediately released. The confirmation came after Valls told the French Senate that the gunmen "killed mercilessly, snuffing out 130 lives" as they carried out their rampage.

"Last Friday evening, the head of state declared a state of emergency. The extreme seriousness of the situation necessitated it. In less than two hours, the heavily armed, meticulously prepared terrorists, true suicide attackers struck Paris and Saint-Denis seven times," Valls said, as quoted by AP. "They killed mercilessly, snuffing out 130 lives and injuring several hundred, many of whom are still fighting for their lives."

In addition to those killed, 351 people were injured, of whom some remain in a critical condition, which means the death toll could increase further. Last week's terror attacks in the heart of Paris were the deadliest attacks in France since the end of World War II, and the deadliest in the European Union since bombs killed 191 people on trains in Madrid.
