Paris Carnage

News

France has been rocked with the deadliest violence in Paris by multiple, near simultaneous attacks on entertainment and media sites with dozens killed and many hostages being held in the capital.

The entire country is in lock-down, according to French authorities. These are apparently coordinated suicide attacks as France, which is a member of the U.S.-led coalition waging air strikes against Islamic State fighters in Syria and Iraq, is now on high alert for terrorist attacks ahead of a global climate conference, which opens later on this month.

Western security sources say an Islamist militant group is behind the carnage in Paris.
