WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama still plans to attend a global climate summit in Paris at the end of November despite the attacks claimed by Islamic State, a senior U.S. administration official said on Saturday.

The Paris summit is focused on curbing climate change, one of the Obama administration’s top priorities.

A French official told Reuters earlier on Saturday that the summit would continue with beefed-up security despite the deadly attacks on Paris that killed 127 people.
