Late Friday night in Paris, terrorists launched coordinated attacks — shootings, suicide attacks, and bombings — that reportedly left over 100 dead.
Locations include multiple restaurants, the Bataclan concert hall during a concert of American rock bandThe Eagles Of Death Metal, and the Stade de France during a soccer match — at which French President François Hollande was in attendance.
President Hollande escaped and declared a state of emergency, temporarily closing the nation's borders. U2's Saturday concert in the nation's capital has been canceled as a result of the events.
In the States, New York City is increasing security after the attacks; the NYPD's Strategic Response Group is patrolling key areas such as Times Square.
Police in D.C. have also sent extra personnel to the French Embassy and other high-profile areas. The Department stressed that these maneuvers are cautionary, and not because of an immediate threat.
French police have confirmed that security forces raided the Bataclan — four attackers were reportedly killed. Three of the gunmen blew themselves up with suicide belts when authorities moved in on the theater. Over 100 are reported dead in the concert hall alone.
The head of Paris police says all the attackers across the capital are believed to be dead, but officials are still on the lookout for any accomplices.
No group so far has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
