Us attacks france at security conference Paris terror attack

French police say five people were killed and dozens wounded when a gunman opened fire outside the Stade de France during Saturday’s soccer soccer match.

Police were searching for one person in connection with the attack, which came after fireworks were set off outside the stadium.

But witnesses said people were rushing away from the stadium, which played host to Sunday’s game, with tear gas.

French President Francois Hollande더킹카지노 later declared a state of emergency for the entire of Paris, the country’s economic powerhouse and the heart of western civilization.

In a telephone call with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Hollande said there were „crimes against humanity“ among the attackers, French radio reported.

„France should have none of that,“ Hollande told Merkel. „What we do today is a responsibility and must be accepted for what it is.“

‘Very frightening’

The attacker drove a white car into the stadium, and police said he was killed as he drove down the road. Police closed off the streets leading from the stadium but allowed people around to use public transport, France’s state broadcaster, France 2, reported.

Cops in the area began searching for a man in a black car and at least one police helicopter. There was a huge security presence around the stadium. At the stadium, the venue’s police chief said no weapons were found and no explosives were found in a suspect’s car.

A small group of people were gathered outside a hotel, where a dozen people had already gathered, after the incident.

„Just minutes after the shooting, dozens of police cars were in the street,“ local media said on Twitter.

The soccer stadium, which seats around 120,000 people, has a capacity of around 12,500, and can be easily overwhelmed, experts say. A number of terrorist attacks are being investigated in Paris, including last year’s deadly Charlie Hebdo attack.

Reuters was unable to confirm the exact identities of the victims but said that six were „young people of European origin,“ while the French news agency Agence Fran더킹카지노ce-Presse said it was „under the assumption that all of them are football fans“.
