President Obama made a statement vowing action and justice saying, "We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act,". CNN reported.

The New York Times also reported that American and European officials describe the attack as well organized, well armed and strategically planned.

The U.S. plans to take action against those responsible for the attack including the use of warships along the the coast and the use of drones to track the movement of the suspected group responsible for the attack, officials said.

More investigation is being done to uncover the identity of the militant Islamic group responsible for the attack as well as the possible motivations behind it.
