Russian airmen have inscribed 'That's for Paris' on the side of one of the bombs they plan to use against Isis in Syria.

A picture of the bomb was shared from the official Twitter account of the Russian Embassy in the UK.

Several coordinated gun and suicide bombing attacks on the French capital by Islamists killed 129 people on Friday 13.

Over the last month, the Russian military has conducted bombing missions in Syria and fired multiple cruise missiles at the Isis stronghold of Raqqa.

Russia has vowed to escalate its military campaign against Isis in Syria after it confirmed the Metrojet airliner which crashed in the Sinai, killing 224 passengers, was brought down by a bomb.

However, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has previously criticised the strikes, saying they may have killed "several hundred" civilians.
