French far-right leader Marine Le Pen says radical Islam is behind the shootings in Paris where gunmen killed 12 people.

The objective of these barbaric acts is to terrorise, to paralyse through fear, to subjugate or to censor. Undisputedly after this after this act that traumatised the whole nation, fear is there.

It is my responsibility to say that this fear must be overcome. And to say that this attack must free speech in the face of Islamic fundamentalism. We must not stay silent. And we must say what happened.

We must not be scared of words: this is a terrorist act committed in the name of radical Islamism. Denial and hypocrisy are no longer an option.

The absolute refusal of Islamic fundamentalism must be proclaimed high and loud by whomever. Life and liberty are among the most precious values.

– Marine Le Pen
