At least 18 people have been killed so far (though some reports have the death toll at 40) and many more have been injured after a series of obviously coordinated attacks by Muslim barbarians on the city of Paris.
A witness told France Info radio the men opened fire and shouted “Allahu Akbar”.
The men came in and started shooting. Everyone fell to the ground. It was hell.
I took my mum, and we hid. Someone near us said they have gone, so we ran out. I was only thinking of escaping.
We’re out now. I think people are still inside.
It’s a nightmare – a nightmare.

Part of the attack took place just outside of the Stadium of France where the French national team was playing soccer against the German national team.

I am shocked by events in Paris tonight. Our thoughts and prayers are with the French people. We will do whatever we can to help.
