PARIS  — The latest on the attacks in Paris and security alert in Brussels. All times local:

10:25 a.m.

Italy's prime minister has renewed his commitment to fighting terrorism alongside France, saying a broader coalition is needed to destroy the Islamic State group "and the atrocious project that it represents."

In a meeting Thursday with the French president, Matteo Renzi said that Libya must be a priority, saying the north African country "risks to be the biggest emergency."

French President Francois Hollande is in the midst of a weeklong push for a stronger coalition against Islamic State militants after the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris that killed 130 and left hundreds injured. Hollande leaves Thursday for a meeting in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He has already spoken with U.S. President Barack Obama.
