Today is a sad day. Over 100 people are dead and there may be at 100 hostages after three separate attacks in France. It’s still unclear exactly how many people have died, but there are reports that as many as 149 people have died in the the shootings and bombings in Bataclan concert hall (American rock band Eagles of Death Metal were performing) in central Paris and there was an explosion at the Stade de France outside Paris and Restaurant Au Petite Cambodge.
Two or three gunman opened fire inside of the Bataclan concert hall for 10 to 15 minutes firing randomly at people. They were able to reload three or four times.
According to CNN,
French radio reporter Julien Pearce was inside the Bataclan theater when gunmen entered. Two men dressed in black started shooting what he described as AK-47s, and after wounded people fell to the floor, the two gunmen shot them again, execution-style, he said. The two men didn’t wear masks and didn’t say anything. The gunfire lasted 10 to 15 minutes, sending the crowd inside the small concert hall into a screaming panic, said Pearce, who escaped. He said he saw 20 to 25 bodies lying on the floor.
President Obama addressed the tragedy, “This is an attack not just on Paris, not just on the people on France, but an attack on all humanity and the universal values we share.”
This is just gross! My heart is broken!
