At least 140 people were killed in the worst violence in France since World War II.
The French capital was the target of unprecedented carnage when a group of unidentified terrorists carried between four and six coordinated attacks throughout the French capital.
The attackers targeted a number of restaurants, bars, and other public venues in Paris. An explosion was heard near the Stade de France, where French President Francois Hollande was attending a friendly football match between France and Germany.
Three terrorists held hundreds of people inside the Bataclan theater, where they killed around 100 people.
French media quoted hostages saved by the police as saying that the terrorists killed the victims trapped inside the Bataclan one by one.
Following the attacks, the French President declared the state of emergency and closed the borders.
At the time of writing, no organization has claimed responsibility for the unprecedented terrorist attacks.
French authorities have not disclosed any information on the identity of the perpetrators, though many observers point out that the so-called Islamic state in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is likely behind the carnage.
