OTTAWA — A Foreign Affairs spokeswoman says a Canadian was injured during the Paris attacks on Friday.

Diana Khaddaj says in an email that Canadian consular officials in Paris are in contact with the family of the Canadian and are providing assistance.

She says no other information is being released for privacy reasons.

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.
