As many as 118 people alone were massacred at a concert in the Bataclan theatre following a hostage situation last night that concluded in a suicide attack while another 11 were shot down at a Cambodian restaurant.
While death toll estimates range from 120 to 150, early reports suggest a further 200 people are being treated for injuries, with 80 of them seriously hurt.
Investigators said at least eight attackers were dead by the end of the violence – the bloodiest in Europe since the Madrid train bombings in 2004 – with seven of them having blown themselves up.
Four of the attackers were killed in the concert hall, three by activating their suicide vests while one was shot by police.
Just five miles away, suicide bombers blew themselves up outside the Stade de France sports stadium where the French football team was playing Germany while another died in a street in eastern Paris. Other gunmen or accomplices could still be at large.
