President Francois Hollande has declared a state of emergency throughout the French territory and has ordered borders closed to prevent escape of the terrorists.
“We will stand together. We will never bow. We will never break. That’s the character of our two nations,” said Vice President Joe Biden in a statement on the Paris attacks.
UPDATE: Eight terrorists are killed, seven of them suicide bombers. More gunmen might still be at large. Paris is on lockdown. 7,000 troops have been deployed on streets of France. A massive manhunt is underway.
UPDATE: Thousands sing La Marseillaise, the French national anthem, during the evacuation of Stade de France, the national stadium north of Paris, after the terrorists attempted to attack the venue during the French-German friendly attended by President Hollande.
