It’s what we all warned about and feared was coming, only a matter of time.
Bloodbath in Paris: 150 killed as jihadist gunmen blow themselves up at concert and Kalashnikov-wielding terrorist opens fire in restaurant. Suicide bombers detonate near Stade de France
WARNING – GRAPHIC CONTENT: Paris was gripped by terror last night following a series of terror attacks which killed more than 150 people across the French capital. As many as 118 were massacred at a rock concert in the Bataclan theatre, where three terrorists were holding hundreds of people hostage. They detonated their explosive vests when police raided the theatre to rescue the hostages (top and bottom right). Elsewhere, 11 people were killed when fanatics opened fire on a Cambodian restaurant on Rue Bichat (main) and two suicide bombers blew themselves up near the Stade de France where the French football team was playing Germany.
President Francois Hollande had to be evacuated from the stadium and eventually declared a national state of emergency. He has deployed 1,500 extra troops in the city in the wake of the terrifying attacks which ISIS supporters have been celebrating online. Investigators said at least eight attackers were dead by the end of the violence – the bloodiest in Europe since the Madrid train bombings in 2004 – with seven of them having blown themselves up.
