Shooting/Terrorism in Paris

Apparently up to or over 60 people dead.

Hostages held in a concert hall.

Explosions heard around the Germany/France soccer stadium

As always we'll get a million different scenarios before the dust settles and facts come out. Horrible event

Simply terrible. I don't know what else to say, it's heartbreaking.

This makes me sad. Hoping it doesn't get any worse than what it is, and that everyone is in a safe place.

The Telegraph's Rory Mulholland reports:
A friend's daughter, Annette, got a text message a few minutes ago from one of her friends who is still in Le Carillon café, one of the places hit. "We all ran inside when the shooting started and dived for the ground. At this moment we have been told by police to remain on the ground. There are several bodies alongside us."
The café is usually packed on a Friday night, with dozens of people standing outside drinking or sitting on the terrace.
The Petit Cambodge is opposite the Carillon and is also always packed on a weekend night.

The bars were particularly busy because of the Friday night football match between France and Germany. The stadium and at least one bar near it were targeted.

Looks like they're going to try to breach/storm the building the hostages are in.

The story from that radio reporter who managed to escape from the Bataclan was chilling. The situation in there must be a nightmare.

I also don't want to start imagining what this is going to do with regards to the refugee crisis in Europe....

WaPo had a report from the drummer's mother that the band escaped and went to a police station. They called their loved ones at the station because they didn't have time to grab anything when they fled so none of them had phones. Unclear what the status of the band's crew is.

I mean they're systematically killing people in there. Terrifying. The French police are probably going to have to storm the building. I think they're not going to have a choice. There's no ransom that I'm aware of. These people don't want anything but to kill.

Yeah, seems like they just went in.
