Paris attacks

More than 150 people are feared to have been killed in a series of devastating attacks across Paris on Friday evening.

All the attackers are believed to have died, police say, although authorities continue to search for accomplices who might still be at large.

Shootings and explosions were reported in six locations across the city, including the Stade de France in northern Paris, where two suicide attacks and a bombing took place as the national team played Germany in a friendly football match.

As many as 120 people died after a mass shooting inside the Bataclan concert venue, where three attackers also died after detonating suicide belts. Shootings also took place in restaurants and other sites in the centre of the city.

Precise figures for the dead and injured are not known, but rough figures collated from emergency reports from the different attack sites say 150.

President François Hollande, who was at the Stade de France at the time of the assaults, said:

We are going to lead a war which will be pitiless. Because when terrorists are capable of committing such atrocities they must be certain that they are facing a determined France, a united France, a France that is together and does not let itself be moved, even if today we express infinite sorrow.

A state of emergency has been declared across France and the country’s borders have been closed.

Paris residents have been told to stay in their homes.

VN’s thoughts and prayers remain with France and the families of the lost ones.
