No fewer than 18 people have been killed in Paris during France’s international friendly match against Germany at the Stade de France on Friday night.
Two police officers have told the Associated Press that 26 people have died, while the deputy mayor of Paris says that 18 have died.
The police have suggested that 11 people have been killed at the Petit Cambodge restaurant in the centre of Paris, with 15 killed at the Bataclan theatre.
Noone is believed to have been killed at the Stade de France. Several shootings have taken place throughout Paris while two explosions were heard outside the Stade de France during the match.
Three explosions have also been reported at a bar near the stadium. The gunmen have fled the scene. Police have also confirmed that a hostage situation is ongoing at the Bataclan theatre with around 60 people believed to be inside.
No one was allowed to leave or enter the Stade de France with police confirming that two explosions outside the stadium during the first half of the match were grenades.
The explosions were heard throughout the stadium and the match, which France won 2-0, continued. Supporters of both teams were allowed onto the Stade de France pitch after the final whistle.
French President Francois Hollande had previously been evacuated from the stadium during the match.
The attacks follow news that the Germany team were evacuated from their team hotel earlier on Friday due to a bomb scare.
