Nov 14 (Reuters) - French President Francois Hollande said on Saturday the deadly attacks in Paris that killed 127 people were "an act of war" organised from abroad by Islamic State with internal help.

He said he would address parliament on Monday in an extraordinary meeting and the country would observe three days of official mourning.
