Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.

As you’ll know by now, a coordinated series of terrorist attacks struck Paris on Friday evening, killing at least 127 people and wounding hundreds more. French President Francois Hollande attributed the attacks to ISIS, who reportedly claimed responsibility in a statement. Here’s our coverage so far:

—Adam, Krishnadev, and me on the latest developments about the attacks, the casualties, and the French and international reaction.

—Alan’s photo essay of Paris under attack and the world’s response.

—Jeff on the “crimes” for which jihadists will sentence someone to death.

In addition to our ongoing coverage of the attacks, we’re also highlighting some of our previous coverage of ISIS and the crisis in the Middle East.

—Graeme Wood’s March 2015 cover story, “What ISIS Really Wants.”

—David Ignatius on how ISIS spread in the Middle East.

—Our special report series on what to do about ISIS, featuring discussions from top scholars and journalists about the future of fighting the world's most prominent terrorist organization.

Stay tuned for more coverage of this developing story throughout the day and the weekend.
