Deadly shootings and explosions broke out at the Bataclan Concert Hall in Paris on Nov 13, where Eagles of Death Metal were performing a sold-out show. According to eye-witness accounts, the killers entered the venue and immediately started firing upon the concertgoers before taking over 100 hostage. Benjamin Cazenoves, one of those held hostage inside the concert hall, told the Daily Mail that the terrorists were “cutting down” people one-by-one, describing the attack as a “bloodbath.”
The hostage crisis ended with two of the attackers reportedly killed by authorities, according the Associated Press. French authorities secured the Bataclan concert venue with police squads, eventually putting an end to the terrifying crisis. Sadly, they could not save the lives of the reported 118 people killed inside.
In addition to the hostage situation and the reported explosion at the nearby Stade de France stadium where France was playing Germany in a friendly soccer match, there was an intense shootout at a Paris restaurant. An eyewitness at the diner said that it sounded “like fireworks” when the bullets started flying. French president Francois Hollande announced that he would close the French borders, while President Obama condemned this “act of terror.”
As always, HollywoodLife.com‘s thoughts remain with the hostages and victims, as well as their friends and family, during this difficult time.
