At Least 46 Killed, 100 Hostages Taken in Paris Shootings

USA Today is reporting least 46 people were killed late Friday after gunmen opened fire at three locations in central Paris and fled in a car. They later took around 100 people hostage in a concert hall, police said.

At about the same time, two  explosions were heard at or near the the Stade de France, the national stadium, where Germany and France were holding a soccer match, the Associated Press reports. It was not immediately clear if the two events were related.

According to the Associated Press, a police official said 11 people were killed in a Paris restaurant in the 10th arrondissement, and about 35 killed in the Bataclan theatre, where a hostage-taking is under way.

The newspaper Liberation said officials speaking over a loudspeaker at the stadium asked the crowd to evacuated calmly. French President Francois Hollande was at the game at the time and left to deal with the crisis.
