Paris | 03 December 2015
On the evening of 13 November 2015, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks occurred in Paris, the capital of France, and its northern suburb, Saint-Denis. Beginning at 21:20 CET, three suicide bombers struck near the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, followed by suicide bombings and mass shootings at cafés, restaurants and the music venue Bataclan in Paris.
The attackers killed 130 people (state of Dec 09, 2015), including 89 at the Bataclan, where they took hostages before engaging in a stand-off with police forces. There were 368 injuries. Seven of the attackers also died.
The attacks were the deadliest on France since World War II and the deadliest in the European Union since the Madrid train bombings in 2004.
