In France, an American-owned factory became the scene of a beheading during which the perpetrator planted an Islamic State flag.
In Tunisia, a beach resort and two hotels were attacked and 27 victims and one shooter were killed in a major attack. Local police are currently hunting more gunmen.
In Kuwait City, the Islamic State took responsibility for a bombing at a mosque that injured at least eight people.

The attacks came around the same time on Friday but the level of coordination is not yet clear but it comes just days after the Islamic State called for a torrent of attacks during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
“Muslims, embark and hasten toward jihad,” Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, an Islamic State spokesman, said earlier this week. “O mujahedeen everywhere, rush and go to make Ramadan a month of disasters for the infidels.”
