Three attacks in the central and very popular area of Paris.
At least 129 people have been confirmed dead and more are injured in a series of simultaneous attacks in the central district of Paris. Only last January, there were attacks on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters, and these recent attacks were done not too far away from that same area.
For those who want to know if their relatives are safe, Facebook has set up a page.
Here are things we know so far of the Paris Attacks:
Death toll: 129 dead, 352 injured.
At least 4 shootings took place.
Three explosions took place at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis Two.
Men open-fired in a concert inside the Bataclan stadium.
Hostage crisis is happening inside the Bataclan concert.
A source earlier told CNN there were six to eight hostage takers, citing a person they were talking to inside the venue.
CNN reporter, Jim Bittermann, who was inside Bataclan at the time of the attack said the men were very casual in their attack and reloaded their Kalashnikovs calmly. They were also not heard to have uttered a word.
Attacks on Les Halles, Petit Cambodge restaurant, and Bataclan concert hall. Two were very near the Stade de France, where a friendly match between Germany and France was happening earlier. President Hollande, who was watching the event, was evacuated to safety.
President Barack Obama was briefed on the attack already.
Obama: “This is an attack not just on Paris, not just on the people on France, but an attack on all humanity and the universal values we share.”
Obama: “They have been our oldest allies.”
Unconfirmed report: A man who attacked in Bataclan shouted “This is for Syria!”
