PARIS — At least 158 people are dead and 200 injured after terrorist attacks in Paris, including 118 at a concert hall, according to Fox News.
French President Francois Hollande, in an address to the nation, said he had declared a state of emergency, meaning borders will be closed. A mandatory curfew has been imposed in Paris, Fox News reports. It is the first since 1944.
People from inside the Paris Bataclan concert hall were posting on social media begging the police to come in, saying they are slaughtering people one-by-one, CNN reports.
A witness inside the concert hall told CNN, “It was a bloodbath,” saying the attackers would just look at people and then shoot them without remorse. Five explosions were heard in the concert hall, according to reports.
One person was arrested and that person told police he was from Syria and recruited from ISIS, according to Fox News, citing French sources.
Twelve people have been rescued from the concert hall and taken to safety as authorities stormed the hall, according to Fox News.
The scene at the concert hall has since ended and police gained control of the situation.
Five attackers are dead, according to the Associated Press.
Six attacks took place in Paris, according to Fox News, citing French sources. Three explosions took place at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis late Friday, BFMTV said. Two or three gunmen entered the Bataclan concert hall while opening fire on law enforcement, BFMTV reported.
A witness told BFMTV that firefighters were on the scene to treat the injured.
There was a lockdown at the Stade de France due to possible explosions, according to French media. President Francois Hollande was at the stadium, watching France playing world champions Germany in a friendly soccer match, but he left to go to the Interior Ministry.
