On Nov 6, a Russian plane carrying 224 people crashed in the Sinai peninsula in Egypt.
Nobody survived the crash. Investigators believe a bomb was smuggled on board.
One day before the attacks in Paris, suicide bombers carried out one of the bloodiest terror attacks in Beirut, Lebanon, killing about 50 people and leaving more than 150 injured.
Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for these attacks.
Speaking after Friday’s carnage in Paris, Dr Rohan Gunaratna of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, said: “The coordinated simultaneous multiple attacks against French civilians are inspired and instigated by ISIS.
“The brutality of executions mirrors ISIS mindset and methodology, and diffusion of ideology and practice.”
