France has declared a national state of emergency and tightened borders after at 140 people were killed in a night of gun and bomb attacks in Paris on Friday, November 13, 2015. Here’s what we know so far:
- Le Carillon bar, 18 rue Alibert, 10th district – gun attack
- Le Petit Cambodge restaurant, 20 rue Alibert, 10th district – gun attack
- Stade de France, St Denis, just north of Paris – explosions near venue as France played Germany in football friendly

- Bataclan concert venue, 50 boulevard Voltaire, 11th district – gun attack and hostages taken

This comes less than a year since the Charlie Hebdo shooting that left 11 dead and another 11 injured on January 7, 2015. The phrase Je suis Charlie (French for “I am Charlie”) was a common slogan of support at the rallies and in social media.
