Francois Hollande, the President of France, has announced a state of emergency across the country following a series of coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris across restaurants, a theatre and near a football stadium on 13th November 2015. The terrorist attack left over 150 people dead and over 350 injured in Paris. French President Francois Hollande vowed a "merciless" response to the slaughter after ISIS claimed responsibility. Twitter account associated with ISIS reported that Paris was ‘paralysed’ on 13th November by their fighters. French media has partially identified two of the attackers as Ismail M. and Abbdul Akbak B.
Hollande has ordered to close the country’s borders after terming the attacks as unprecedented. He said, "We will work alongside our allies to fight this terrorist menace ... France is strong and even if she is wounded she will get up always and nothing will hold her down, even if we are feeling the grief now ... We will defend ourselves." France is supporting the US led air strikes on ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
It is believed that around hundred people were shot dead at the Bataclan concert hall after three gunmen took hostages. Moreover, people heard explosions near the Stade de France stadium during an ongoing Football Match between France and Germany. Hollande was present at the stadium to view the match.
Three teams of killers carried out the coordinated suicide mission across Paris on Friday that killed over 150 people and wounded at least 350 more. Meanwhile, the police was able to kill 8 attackers involved in the terrorist attack. It is also reported that some of the accomplices of the terrorist have not been caught yet.
