Deadly Paris Attacks: What We Know So Far

At least 140 people have been killed in a series of attacks on busy restaurants, bars, a concert hall and the national football stadium in Paris.

Bataclan Concert Hall
Police say around 100 people were killed at the venue by two armed men who entered the building on Friday night.
​A witness told Sky News the helpless victims were shot “one by one”. The attackers were later killed themselves in a raid by an elite police unit.

It is not known what happened to the Eagles Of Death Metal, the Californian band who were performing there at the time. Top government officials including President Francois Hollande were said to be heading to the hall.

Stade de France
Police confirm two suicide attacks and one bombing near the stadium in the north of Paris where a friendly France-Germany football match was being held. A French football official said one of the explosions occurred near one of the stadium’s gates.

An Associated Press reporter who was inside the stadium said there were two explosions loud enough to be heard above the sound of cheering fans. French President Francois Hollande, who was in the stadium, left immediately and hundreds of people spilled onto the pitch.

Petit Cambodge Restaurant
Outside the Cambodian restaurant in the 10th arrondissement – not far from the offices of magazine publisher Charlie Hebdo – police say 11 people were killed. Witnesses said gunmen armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles had fired at diners through the plate-glass windows.

Rue de Charonne
There were reports of shootings in rue de Charonne in the 11th district. Witnesses have described seeing bodies lying in the streets.

Les Halles Shopping Mall
There were also reports of shootings at the shopping centre close to the Pompidou centre.
