Sounds of AK47s and grenades were heard and reports of explosive belts caused a catastrophe including a massacre. One report stated that there was voices of “Allahu Akbar” coming from one attack. At least Sixty people are reported killed (and rising) during what obviously seems to be a Muslim terrorist Mumbai style coordinated attacks throughout Paris.
In one restaurant two were killed and there are reports of three explosions one at a soccer stadium where France was playing against Germany including hostage taking in a theatre were the victims were begging for police to enter since the terrorists were killing the hostages one by one. In the theatre there was carnage and bodies everywhere which is besides the sixty reported dead. A video shows the sounds of mayhem and gun shots with what seems to be screaming in Algerian dialect:
