Prayers are up for Paris! According to Fox 28, a French police official says at least 100 people have been killed inside a Paris concert hall where attackers seized hostages. The hostage-taking was one in a series of at least six attacks across the French capital.
Officials reported approximately one hundred other people were rescued.
Journalist Pierre Buet, talking with CNN Friday night said hostages were evacuated from the Bataclan Concert Center in Paris.
According to The Associated Press, the assault on the concert hall is over, reporting at least two attackers were killed.
The Associated Press reported fifteen casualties at the venue; Agence France-Presse reports around 100 people were killed.
The concert hall was one of several reported locations where explosions and gunfire were reported throughout the city on Friday.
People from inside the theater reportedly used social media to reach loved ones and let them know what was happening.
Buet, who told CNN he was hiding in the bushes outside the theater, said he watched rescue crews assisting hostages out of the building.
According to CNN, a radio reporter who was at the show and managed to escape the building, claimed he saw several wounded people on the ground as he fled the concert.
According to the venue’s Facebook page, the band “Eagles of Death Metal” – a band from Southern California – was performing when the siege took place.
The band released a statement on their Facebook page, stating “We are still currently trying to determine the safety and whereabouts of all our band and crew. Our thoughts are with all of the people involved in this tragic situation.”
