Chaos in Paris as at least 30 people have been killed in several shootings, three explosions are reported outside a bar near the Stade de France and terrorists are holding survivors hostage at the Paris Bataclan concert hall.
There were reportedly two “suicide attacks” outside the stade de France sports stadium, where the France-Germany friendly match is still underway. In another development several gunmen opened fire with Kalashnikovs at the Petit Cambodge restaurant in the 11th district.
Shooting has also been heard near the Bataclan arts centre, where terrorists are allegedly holding more than 100 hostage. Police have evacuated bars and restaurants in the area and cordoned off the shooting zone.
French president Francois Hollande was at the France-Germany football match when the attacks began. He was evacuated at 22.15 local time and taken to Place Beauvau, the interior ministry, where he is currently holding a crisis meeting with his ministers and Manuel Valls, the prime minister.
