Two days after the French city of Strasbourg suffered an attack near its Christmas market, locals have been paying their respects to those who died with candles and flowers.

Local authorities have now increased the death toll to three.

Thirteen people were wounded, including five in serious condition, said the prefecture of the Strasbourg region.

The suspect, 29-year-old Cherif Chekatt, is still at large and more than 700 police officers are involved in the manhunt.

Armed police launched an operation in the neighbourhood of Neudorf on Thursday but there is no immediate indication they have located the shooter.
