A new report obtained by the New York Times provides new information about the Paris attacks, in the light of the arrest of reported logistics chief, Salah Abdeslam.

The report states that the attackers were sent by the Islamic State’s external operations wing and were well versed in a range of terrorism tactics — including making suicide vests and staging coordinated bombings while others led shooting sprees — to hamper the police response. They exploited weaknesses in Europe’s border controls to slip in and out undetected, and worked with a high-quality forger in Belgium to acquire false documents.

It is an interesting article and worth a read.
