There was a soccer game happening between France and Germany, the fans were having a great time watching the game at Saint Dennis stadium. Until terrorist started shooting with AK-47s and bombs strapped on to their belts. At least 66 people were shot or bombed in the stadium, one of the explosions at the stadium of France was a suicide bombing. No one expected to be attacked during a game; the players were scared to death during the massacre they stated. President Barack Obama made a statement about the bombing in Paris and he said “This is an attack not just on Paris, not just on the people of France, but an attack on all humanity and the universal values we share”
During the massacre in the stadium, there was another attack on a concert in Bataclan, France. About 80 people were shot and bombed during the concert, a journalist who was at the concert stated that he lied on the floor so he wouldn’t get shot or hurt, and it was a huge panic for him and for other people. He said that the terrorists were shooting at the people for about 10 to 15 minutes. “It was a bloodbath” he said. During the concert before the shooting, it seemed like officers took about 100 hostages from the concert hall. Some of the French civilians knew what was going to happen so they took the chance of killing 2 terrorist, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to stop them from the shooting in the concert.
Finally the last shooting of the night, 2 friends were having a nice time eating at a restaurant called Le Petit Cambodge, a Cambodian restaurant. She heard gunshots coming from the street and it the sounds were getting louder and louder and there was glass thrown into the windows of the restaurant and her and her friend dropped onto the ground and ducked with the other diners. While she was on the floor, she grabbed a woman’s arm and she didn’t respond, she turned her around and there was a bullet hole on her chest and blood all over her and on the floor. Around 14 people were announced dead in Le Petit restaurant.
Hollander declared a state of emergency, meaning bounding security will be ramped up. “We have to show compassion and solidarity and we also have to show unity and keep our cool. France must be strong” Hollande said. Paris has been instructed the residents to stay home at all times unless it is an an absolute necessity. The Russian President Vladimir Putin sent his condolences to Hollande and the people of France. “Russia strongly condemns this inhumane killing and is ready to provide any and all assistance to investigate these terrorist crimes” President Putin says. We all hope and wish for the best of Paris
