The injured is a woman who holds dual Canadian and American citizenship, an embassy official said.

The co-ordinated gun and bomb attacks on France's national stadium, a concert hall and cafes left 129 people dead and 350 wounded.

Islamic State militants have claimed responsibility for the attacks and are threatening to attack all nations involved in bombing IS positions in Syria and Iraq.
