Police Storm Paris' Bataclan Hall, Some Hostages Reported Dead
Earlier: The AP reported on Friday evening that police officials have stormed Bataclan Hall in Pari, following a hostage situation. Some hostages were reportedly killed by terrorists after approximately 100 were taken during an Eagles of Death concert. Unconfirmed reports on Twitter are saying victims inside the theater sent messages over Facebook reporting that terrorists began executing hostages one by one. A Reuters witness reported five explosions heard near the concert hall. BuzzFeed reported that at least 15 people were killed at the hall.
The Bataclan concert hall was just one of three locations targeted in the Friday night attacks in Paris, which are being widely reported as the deadliest violence in France in decades with at least 60 dead, according to Reuters. Several explosions were heard near the national stadium, Stade de France, and a shootout at a Le Petit Cambodge restaurant resulted in several other casualties. French president Francois Hollande closed France's borders and declared the country in a state of emergency after the series of attacks.
