Paris Attack On 13th November, 2015; More Than 120 People Died by Now: Yesterday, another attack took place at Paris Bataclan concert hall. France has declared a national state of emergency and tightened borders after at least 120 people were killed in a night of gun and bomb attacks in Paris. Paris police have confirmed that all the attackers that were in the Bataclan concert hall are dead, having blown themselves up with explosives as police stormed the building. Authorities are still on the hunt for any potential accomplices, though it remains unconfirmed if there are any. This wraps up our coverage for the night, but we will be back early on Saturday morning with more information as it happens. It has been a horrific night for France, in what was the worst attack on home soil since World War Two. President Hollande has promised to show “no mercy” in fighting the attackers. Out of all the attackers, one of them has surrendered in the process. Paris is shut down on Saturday, with schools, museums, libraries and pools not opening their doors to the public.
Paris saw three days of attacks in early January, when Islamist gunmen murdered 18 people after attacking satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, a Jewish supermarket and a policewoman on patrol.

Many buildings and monuments around the world used their lights to show solidarity with France within hours of the attacks. The World Trade Center in New York lit up its spire in the colors of the French flag. Eyewitness reports from the multiple attack sites in Paris are illustrating the horror of Friday night. Ben Grant, who was with his wife in a bar that was attacked, told the BBC he was at the back of the bar when the shots started. “I couldn’t see anything,” he told the BBC. “I heard gunshots. People dropped to the ground. We put a table over our heads to protect us. “We were held up in the bar because there was a pile of bodies in front of us.” At the Bataclan concert hall, where the bulk of victims were, Marc Coupris told the Guardian “it was carnage…. It looked like a battlefield, there was blood everywhere, there were bodies everywhere.
Those who survived the concert attack were bused to a special crisis center for psychological support, the AP reported. Some walked in dazed, the AP reported, with emergency blankets draped over their shoulders.
