PARIS (Reuters) - A cellphone has been found near the site of one of last Friday's Paris shootings with a map of the music venue that was attacked and a text message on it saying words to the effect of "let's go", a source with knowledge of the investigations said.

Confirming reports on French web site Mediapart and United States television channel CNN, the source said the phone was found in a dustbin near the Bataclan concert hall, where the bloodiest of the shootings took place.

At least 129 people died in the killings, including 89 at the Bataclan.

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has claimed responsibility for the co-ordinated suicide bombings and shootings.
