At Least 100 Dead in Multiple Paris Terror Attacks

Paris AttackParis, France — (NBC News) At least 100 people were killed in an attack at a Paris concert hall Friday night, according to The Associated Press. The attack was one of several explosions and shootings throughout the city.

NBC News has not independently confirmed the death toll.

French President François Hollande ordered a state of emergency in Paris and closed the country’s borders.

The violence occurred at several different locations. Police in Paris told NBC News that several people had been shot at a restaurant in the 10th arrondissement in Paris, and The Associated Press reported that there were fatalities at the nearby Bataclan theater, where scores of hostages had been held.

Paris police officials said that security forces killed at least two attackers in the theater, ending the siege.

A police union official told the AP that there were two suicide attacks and a bombing near the Stade de France north of Paris. At least three people were killed near the stadium, Gregory Goupil of the Alliance Police Nationale told the AP.

“Terrorist attacks of an unprecedented magnitude are in play in Paris. It’s horror,” Hollande said. “We have mobilized all forces possible to neutralize the terrorist.”

“I’ve asked for military reinforcements to make sure that no other attack can happen,” Hollande said.

Police in Paris warned people in the city to stay inside.

Officers were being dispatched to sites around the 10th arrondissement, which is about four miles from the Stade de France, police told NBC News. It was unclear if the incidents were related.
