New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar on Thursday evening justified Paris terror attacks and said that the attack was imminent. Referring to the French government ban on Muslim wearing Hijab, the Congress leader said that this is just an response.

"I think that the way which war has been conducted by Americans, we knew since then there will be such a reaction, France now should think about how to stop such attack, " the leader added.

Scattered gunfire and explosions shook France on Thursday as its frightened yet defiant citizens held a day of mourning for 12 people slain at a Paris newspaper. French police hunted down the two heavily-armed brothers suspected in the massacre to make sure they do not strike again.
