The world was shocked last Friday when terrorist attacks on Paris left 129 people dead, including 89 people at the Bataclan concert venue.

Now, five days later, the band that was performing when terrorists opened fire on the audience is speaking out.

Paris Attacks: Hear A Survivor's Story Of How His Life Was Saved — By His Prosthetic Leg

What a shocking story of survival!

Gregoire Philonenko was at the Bataclan theater on Friday night with his 19-year-old son and some friends to see the band Eagles of Death Metal when the terror attacks were launched across Paris.

As people began to die around him, Philonenko and his son both fell to the ground and played dead, hoping they would miraculously be left alone — until one of the terrorists began walking their way and shooting roughly every third person lying down to make sure that they were really dead.

Philonenko wanted him and his son to crawl away, but he couldn't without being seen by the terrorists, and a disability left him with limited mobility — he has a prosthetic right leg.

The father turned to his son at that point, according to an interview he did later with the BBC, and said:

This is just sad and so wrong.

Ibrahim Abdeslam detonated a suicide bomb outside Comptoir Voltaire — near the Bataclan concert hall — on Friday night as part of the deadly terror attacks that rocked Paris. Today, his mother is claiming it all happened because of "stress."

And now, Ibrahim's brother Salah is a fugitive from justice after he escaped to Belgium before police could capture him after the attacks.

The Abdeslam family — rocked to their core that their sons were involved in something so heinous — spoke to reporters about the events, saying that Ibrahim carried out the attacks because he was "stressed," and that they were "shocked" and "thinking of the victims."

Ibrahim's other brother, Mohamed — who was arrested after the attacks but later released without charge — said of the tragedy:

The President of France has officially said that the country "is at war" following Friday's deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.

During an historic meeting with both houses of parliament on Monday morning, President François Hollande issued a statement saying that France would respond to ISIS killing 129 people by "not just containing, but destroying" the terrorist cell.

It's unclear if this was a legitimate declaration of war or more of a manner of speaking, but he clearly got his point across.

The news comes just a day after Prime Minister Manuel Valls also said that the country was "at war with terrorism" following the French Police decision to raid 168 homes over the weekend.

President François Hollande stated that he will be meeting with President Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin later this week.

Filed under: InspirationSad SadFrancophiliaTwitterViolenceScary!Viral: News

It's so incredible to see the people in Paris coming together like this.

On Friday, Paris was rocked by multiple terror attacks.

Reports are saying over 100 people have been killed in a series of assaults, including a hostage situation at Le Bataclan concert hall, explosions during a soccer game at Stade de France, and other shootings.

France's president François Hollande has closed the nation's borders and issued a state of emergency. Police are encouraging civilians to stay off the streets.

In the wake of the terrifying tragedy, Parisian residents are using social media to offer assistance to anyone in the city who doesn't speak French.

One Twitter user shared:

"Porte ouverte" translates to "open door" in English, and that's exactly what the capital's residents are embracing.

A website called porteouverte.eu has been set up to help anyone who's stranded to seek shelter from people in the city who's graciously offered to share their living space.

If non-French speakers in the area search the hashtag online, they'll be able to find and DM users who are willing to let anyone in need of assistance into their homes.

They've been posting messages like this:
