Paris- Paris is under attack in at least three simultaneous attacks. As of this posting (and that number continues to change), at least 35 people are dead and possibly another 100 hostages are being held after three separate violent attacks.
Police say the gunmen—as many as six—were armed with kalashnikovs and grenades. They are all currently on the loose.
At least one of the gunman opened fire at a restaurant near a soccer stadium. The soccer game between France and Germany was taking place at the time. Early reports indicate that a Kalishnikov rifle and grenades were used in at least one attack.
Paris’s deputy mayor says it is too early to say if the attacks were coordinated acts of terror, but that it looks that way. US officials state the attacks were coordinated.
Truth in Media will provide updates as the story is developing.
