Dozens are dead after shootings and explosions rocked Paris on Friday while least 100 hostages are being held captive, according to The Associated Press. The attacks took place at a restaurant, a theater and a nightclub. Police have not yet detained the attackers. 

"This is ... not just an attack on Paris ... this is an attack on humanity and the universal values we share," U.S. President Barack Obama said in a press conference on Friday evening. He added that this country "stand[s] with them in the fight against terrorism."

Former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff told the AP that it's too early to know the details of what's happening in Paris, but that's not stopping people around the world from showing support for victims and residents. Many are using the hashtag #PorteOuverte (#OpenDoor) in solidarity to help people in Paris find safe shelter during the emergency. 

How many more deaths until the world wakes up? How many more innocents? #prayforparis #parisshooting #paris
