PostSubject: Paris attacks: More than 100 dead in multiple attacks, including bloody hostage taking   Fri Nov 13, 2015 8:34 pm



Dozens killed in multiple attacks on French capital; WARNING: graphic images







UPDATED





  • At least 100 killed in hostage taking at Paris concert hall
  • French President François Hollande shuts borders
  • State of emergency declared, military deployed around Paris



French police are reporting that at least 100 people are dead, including two attackers, after security forces stormed a Paris concert hall where dozens were being held hostage as part of multiple deadly attacks around the French capital on Friday.

At least six separate attacks occurred at multiple sites around the capital Friday. These included the hostage taking at the Bataclan music hall in the 11th arrondissement in central Paris, a shooting at a restaurant in another neighbourhood and explosions outside a stadium that might have involved two suicide attacks.

The overall death toll was hard to pin down and continued to rise, with some media reporting that more than 140 people had been killed in the attacks. The Associated Press reported that the hostage takers at Bataclan had tossed explosives at the hostages inside.

"It was carnage," Marc Coupris told the Guardian newspaper after he was freed from the hostage-taking. "It looked like a battlefield, there was blood everywhere, there were bodies everywhere."

Gunfire and explosions had been heard outside the concert venue shortly before the police assault ended.

"It was horrible, there were so many corpses, I just can't talk about it," another man told the Guardian as he eft the Bataclan venue.

A woman who was at a bar near Bataclan said people ran into the bar, fleeing the initial shooting. "They were panicked, wounded, screaming, blood was running all over them. People were having panic attacks; it was horrific."

French President François Hollande had arrived at the site, according to media reports.

Such a horrible thing!! They need to be stopped. If we actually had a president with a backbone and who wasn't trying to help Isis this would not be happening.

This is very sad! I have been following this along with the other tragedies that happened that day as well! This should not have happened! I agree if we had a president who did something about it this would not be happening!

This is a horrific event and it saddens me that these things still occur.  Innocent lives should never be taken for any reason, it's time that human kind stands together and realize that we are in fact all one.  Race, religion, sexual orientation, gender and social status mean nothing in the end because deep down we are all made of the same materials.

A side note, I'm not trying to be argumentative just curious.  I have heard a lot of people over the past few days saying that Obama is pretty much lazy and should do something about this. It's easy to point the finger at one person but if you do think that the president should do something what do you think he should do as a reaction to the current events?

I read some comments on Facebook and a lot of people think that Obama is in on it with Isis. I think right now the focus should be on showing support to the victims and their loved ones.

Could not have said it better myself. These tragedies happen everyday and some are more prominently displayed in media than others.  I've gotten attacked verbally by a few people just for having my picture changed to support France. We as a humanrace need to stop blaming (whether its Obama, Bush, or Mary Margaret)  and start saying "What can I do to promote peace?"
