60 Dead, 100 Held Hostage As Paris Gripped By Terror

Paris has been gripped by terror after three attacks in the heart of the city left at least 60 dead tonight, while there are reports of a fourth.

French President Francois Hollande says he is closing the country's borders and declaring a state of emergency after several dozen people were killed in a series of unprecedented terrorist attacks.
Hollande, in a televised address to his nation, said the nation would stand firm and united against the attackers.
He said security forces are assaulting one of the sites hit by Friday's attacks, without elaborating."It's a horror," he said.
Tom Steinfort of Channel Nine Australia has just tweeted there are reports of a fourth shooting happening now at Place de la Republique. At least 11 were killed in a restaurant shootout and 15 at the Bataclan concert hall where terrorists are said to be holding 100 people hostage.
Two loud explosions were heard outside the Stade de France sports stadium where the French football team was playing a friendly match against Germany. U.S. security officials believe the attacks were coordinated.
