• Scores Killed In Paris Terror Attacks, France Declares A State Of Emergency

    France has declared a national state of emergency and has closed its borders after scores of people were killed in multiple gun and bomb attacks in Paris.

    At least 100 people are reported to have died at the Bataclan concert hall in central Paris Friday night.

    Gunmen took many hostages there before being overpowered when police stormed the building.

    At least 40 people were killed in attacks near the Stade de France, where the French national soccer team was playing Germany, with some reports suggesting there was a suicide blast.

    Paris residents have been asked to stay indoors and military personnel are being deployed across the city.

    President Obama addressed the attack an act of terrorism Friday evening.

    “This is an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians,” Obama said. “This is an attack not just on Paris, not just on France, but an attack on all of humanity and the values that we share.”

    Obama said the U.S. stands ready to help France, which he called “an extraordinary counter-terrorism partner,” in the investigation.

    U.S. Homeland Security Department officials monitoring the attacks in Paris say there is no known, credible threat against the United States.

    New York and Boston were put on high alert in the wake of the attacks.
