Here Are The Locations Of The Paris Attacks

The Huffington Post The Huffington Post 14/11/2015 Matt Ferner

France has declared a state of emergency as multiple attacks with firearms and bombs swept through Paris and nearby late Friday, leaving more than 140 dead and scores wounded.

It wasn't immediately clear if the attacks were linked. No claim of responsibility had surfaced.

The city asked residents on Friday night to stay home, and police said several metro lines were closed. French President Francois Hollande called an emergency cabinet meeting, declaring a state of emergency and closing the nation's borders.

"At this moment, unprecedented terrorist attacks are underway across the city of Paris," Hollande said before the meeting. He said military personnel had been deployed across the city.

These are the locations of the attacks in and around the French capital:


Le Bataclan

What appears to be the deadliest attack occurred at the popular Bataclan concert venue in the 11th Arrondissement, one of the most densely populated districts in Paris. 

According to media reports, multiple gunmen dressed in black massacred more than 100 hostages with bombs and automatic weapons inside the theater. At least 15 people were killed nearby

Authorities said the siege at the theater ended late Friday and that the gunmen were dead.

The attack took place during a concert by the U.S. rock group Eagles of Death Metal. Gunfire and multiple explosions could be heard near the concert hall, The Associated Press and Reuters reported.

The Bataclan is just a few hundred yards from the former offices of the magazine Charlie Hebdo. In January, gunmen forced their way into those offices, opened fire and fled, killing 10 journalists and two police officers and injuring several others.

Le Petit Cambodge

About a half-mile from Bataclan, HuffPost France reported that at least one gunman opened fire outside the Petit Cambodge restaurant, in the 10th Arrondissement. At least 11 people were reported to have been killed there, according to the AP. A reporter for France 24 tweeted these photos from the scene:

Stade de France

At least three explosions took place near the Stade de France, a sports stadium outside Paris, with reports that at least one of those was a suicide bombing.

One of the explosions was audible inside the stadium during a soccer match between France and Germany.

In the video above, the crowd cheers after the explosion and the announcer explains that he believes that the sound is "firecrackers being let off in and around the stadium."

“And actually," the announcer continues, "Germany’s buildup to this match was disrupted by a bomb scare at their hotel earlier on."

The German team was evacuated from their hotel in Paris Friday morning following an anonymous threat. By midday, the team was allowed to return, The Guardian reported.

Following the explosion outside the stadium, Hollande, who was attending the match, was evacuated. 

Les Halles and the Louvre Museum

There were reports of additional shooting at Les Halls shopping mall in central Paris, and in the area near the famous Louvre Museum. It was unclear if anyone was killed or injured.
