France is urging the international community to do more to eradicate the Islamic State group after the deadly attacks in Paris that rattled the Western world.

Foreign minister Laurent Fabius told France-Inter radio that IS is “a monster”, adding: “But if all the countries in the world aren’t capable of fighting against 30,000 people (IS members), it’s incomprehensible.”

The group claimed responsibility for Friday’s attacks on a rock concert, cafes and France’s national stadium that killed at least 129 people.

France has stepped up its air strikes against extremists in Syria since the attack, and President Francois Hollande is going to Washington and Moscow next week to push for a stronger international coalition against IS.
