Parisians are horrified that there have just been multiple terrorist attacks — shootings, a hostage situation, and a series of explosions — in their country on Nov. 13. At least 127 people were killed in the attacks according to French authorities.
So scary. Many people were killed during a machine gun wielding in a Paris restaurant late Friday, Nov. 13, a new report claims. Even worse, there had also reportedly been explosions near national stadium, where the French soccer team was playing Germany. And at least 100 hostages were killed at a concert hall. The country is in disbelief. This is the deadliest violence in France in many, many years.
We can’t believe what we’ve learned. A deadly shooting at a restaurant on the Rue Bichat, explosions near the Stade de France sports stadium (two suicide bombs were detonated) and another shooting at the Paris Bataclan concert hall, where terrorists were holding hostages, all occurred in Paris during the late hours of Nov. 13, Daily Mail claims.
Shots and screams were heard from inside the restaurant, which is super close to where the Charlie Hebdo shootings occurred in January. And at least 100 were killed in the Bataclan theater, where a hostage situation occurred, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hostage-takers were said to be going through the venue, where a rock concert was taking place, looking for people who were hiding from them, CNN claims. At this time, the hostage-takers have been killed by police. All together, at least 153 are dead, multiple reports claim. Survivors of the attack describe the “carnage” as a chilling “bloodbath.”
And it’s not confirmed, but Reuters claims another shooting may have occurred at Les Halles shopping mall in Paris.
UPDATE: The French President has declared a state of emergency and closed Paris’ borders.
