US Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday he wants to give Paris a "big hug" after last week's Islamist attacks in the French capital, when he travels there later in the day.

"My visit to France is basically to share a big hug for Paris and express our affection for France ... and the people in Paris who have gone through a terrible time," Kerry said in Bulgaria.
