Timeline following attacks:
November 14, 2015 - In an online statement, ISIS claims responsibility.

November 15-16, 2015 - French fighter jets bomb a series of ISIS sites in Raqqa, Syria. France has been conducting airstrikes against ISIS targets since September as part of a US-led coalition, but analysts say the timing of the new airstrikes is likely not a coincidence.

November 16, 2015 - In a speech to a joint session of parliament, Hollande urges lawmakers to approve a three-month extension of the nation's state of emergency, with new laws that would allow authorities to strip the citizenship from French-born terrorists and provisions making it easier to deport suspected terrorists.

November 18, 2015 - French authorities raid an apartment building in the northern Paris suburb of Saint-Denis. The apartment is a purported hideout of the suspected ringleader of the attacks. During the raid, a suicide device is detonated and bullets are exchanged for almost an hour. One floor of the building collapses, and there are three fatalities.

November 19, 2015 - It is confirmed that the body of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the ringleader of the Paris attacks, was found in the rubble of the apartment that was raided on November 18. A female relative of Abaaoud, Hasna Ait Boulahcen was also killed in the raid. The third person killed, who is believed to have detonated the suicide device, has not been identified.

November 20, 2015 - French Prime Minister Manuel Valls announces that the death toll has risen to 130. Additionally, he says that in the past seven days, 793 searches have been carried out across France. During these searches, 174 weapons have been seized and 107 people detained.

November 23, 2015 - In Belgium, authorities charge a suspect, arrested during raids in the last 24 hours, with participating in activities of a terrorist group in connection with the Paris attacks.

November 23, 2015 - France launches its first airstrikes from an aircraft carrier against ISIS. With the addition of carrier-based aircraft to its fleet, France now has 38 aircraft carrying out bombing raids against ISIS.

December 17, 2015 - Officials briefed on the investigation tell CNN the terrorists used encrypted apps, including Telegram and WhatsApp, to plan the attacks.

March 18, 2016 - Suspect Salah Abdeslam is wounded and captured following a gun battle with authorities in Belgium. Four others are also arrested in the anti-terror raid.

April 8, 2016 - Suspect Mohamed Abrini is arrested in Belgium along with two other people during a police sweep in the Anderlecht district of Brussels.

November 8, 2016 - French officials tell CNN they have identified the suspected coordinator of the attacks as Oussama Atar. He is believed to have directed the Paris attacks and the March 22 Brussels attacks. The attacks in the Belgian capital killed 32 people and injured more than 300.

November 12, 2016 - The day before the first anniversary of the Paris terror attacks, the Bataclan reopens with a performance by Sting.

April 23, 2018 - Salah Abdeslam, the only survivor of the cell alleged to have carried out the attacks, is sentenced to 20 years over a shootout with Belgian police days before he was arrested in March 2016. He is found guilty of attempted murder in a "terrorist context," a spokesman for the Brussels prosecutor says.

-- Belgium citizen, spent time in Syria.
-- Ringleader of the attacks. He directed three attackers in the Bataclan by phone from a few blocks away, according to French terrorism analyst Jean-Charles Brisard.
-- Joined ISIS in 2014. He has been implicated in the planning of a number of terror attacks and conspiracies in Western Europe, notably a plot broken up in Belgium in January 2015.
-- French air strikes were carried out against an ISIS training camp in Raqqa in October 2015 in an effort to kill Abaaoud, a French counterterrorism source told CNN.

-- French citizen living in Belgium.
-- Brother of Salah Abdeslam.
-- "Ibrahim tried to go to Syria and was sent back by the Turks in the beginning of 2015," Belgian Prosecutor Eric Van der Sypt told CNN. "It was after that that we questioned him." Investigators released Ibrahim and his brother Salah Abdeslam in February after they denied they wanted to go to Syria.

Salah Abdeslam:
-- In custody. Captured March 18, 2016, following a gunbattle with authorities in Belgium.
-- Belgium-born, French national.

Ahmad Al Mohammad (not his real name):
-- Deceased. One of three bombers who detonated themselves at the Stade de France.
-- Held an emergency passport or similar document and falsely declared himself to be a Syrian named Ahmad al Muhammad, born on September 10, 1990.
