    I wonder if there's any connection to the announcement that the US is targeting Jihadi John.

    Thus far the death toll is up to 26 confirmed. The updated to be nearly 100 people being held hostage were at an Eagles of Death Metal concert.

    Just a sad sad story to hear, and my heart goes out to the city

    Unfortunately we are likely to hear a lot of broad generalizations about Muslims in the next few days.

    My sister is currently living out in France, doing some voluntary work there. She's safe, thank god, but she easily could have been out tonight.

    Regardless, it's still fucking awful. Definitely the backlash from the Jihadi John assassination, since gunmen have been quoted to be mentioning Syria.

    Dude I'm really happy to hear she is okay, especially after the scare your family had recently.

    I wonder if the fact that the French President was at the nearby soccer game is mere coincidence or not.

    My work colleagues just went to see Eagles of Death Metal on Monday in Newcastle.

    40 dead according to Sky News plus the 100 hostages and the thousands staying in the stadium. The video of the explosion during the match just made me cry.

    I also don't think this is a response to JJ as you don't knock this out within a few hours.

    If I am reading the various news reports correctly, just in the last day or two there was a major terrorist bust up in the area, so this is likely the far reaching remnants of what was uncovered.

    I think there must have been a planned attack as Yaz said, but with the death of Jihadi John, that most likely encouraged them to attack tonight. It's too much of a coincidence.

    Has there been a terrorist attack of this magnitude in the western world since 7/7?

    Yeah as Lee mentioned there was a fourth shooting confirmed at a nearby mall.

    Outside of that the only news I have heard is that the Department of Homeland security says there is no credible evidence of an attack on the US. Without sounding like a smart ass, if there was a credible threat, wouldn't they move to stop it and alert people of it?

    Imagine going to a gig, match, pub, shop and not coming back?

    One of the two other rumoured locations is the Louvre.

    The Louvre would be close at that time of night. Hopefully that is just speculation on the part of the media.

    Fucking moronic ISIS supporters on social media praising the attacks. They don't realise that they're not only going to get their accounts shut down, but that they're probably going to get traced and arrested too. And yet they probably don't care.

    *****.

    But it's still an area people would visit on a Friday night in Paris (even if closed).

    Another motive could be the French leading a high number of air strikes in Iraq and Syria, more so than any other nation to my knowledge.

    From the French President: Military reinforcements coming in. We know who the terrorists are. The attacks are still going on.

    The reports coming from inside the concert hall are that they are executing the hostages one by one. I can't put into words how this makes me feel. I have literal cold chills reading the updates on reddit.

    They have just implemented the first curfew in Paris since World World 2.

    It just keeps getting worse and worse. Absolutely horrifying.
