It was a night of utmost fun for the thousands of residents and tourists of Paris. Fans were enjoying a soccer match between France and world champion Germany, horror struck in an unprecedented manner. Terrorists- some with AK-47s and some with bombs strapped to them attacked sites throughout the French capital. The euphoria of the fans was short-lived as two bombs exploded just outside the stadium where the match was underway.Scores were killed in the coordinated attacks late Friday, leaving the nation in grief and the world in shock.
U.S. President Barack Obama spoke with French President Francois Hollande to offer his condolences and assistance in the investigation. He called the attacks an “outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians.”A total of six locations (La Belle Equipe, Le Carillon bar, Le Petit Cambodage, La Casa Nostra restaurant, State de France) were attacked and the worst occurred at the Bataclan, where 112 people were left dead out of all the 153 who were killed. Paris Prosecutor spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said eight extremists are dead after the attacks and seven of them died in suicide bombings. Paris is in a state of horror. We know what the people of Paris are going through at the moment as the same thing happened during 26/11 Mumbai attacks.It is an act of shame on the part of the terrorists who are ruthless, devoid of any humanity, and harm the innocent lives in order to get their illicit demands fulfilled.
