Two Paris police officials say security forces have ended their assault on a concert hall filled with hostages, killing at least two attackers.
One official described “carnage” inside the building, saying the attackers had tossed explosives at the hostages.
Both officials said they expected the toll of victims to rise.
It’s believed at least 35 people have been killed in several attacks in the French capital – one near a stadium where France was playing Germany in a football match.
Some areas of Paris have been closed off – as security forces conduct their operations.
French president Francois Hollande says he is closing the country’s borders and declaring a state of emergency and “France will stand firm and united against the attackers.”
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada stands with France during this dark time.
