Simultaneous attacks of neighboring Cambodian and a French restaurants, a suicide bomber neat the soccer stadium (where French President Hollande was watching a match between France and Germany) and the Bataclan Theater where 1,000 people had been watching a concert by an American Rock band.
France is under red alert, people in Paris are being told to stay inside and all borders to France have been closed. More French troops have been called in to reinforce the defense of Paris against further terror attacks. A total of 7 terrorists have been killed and others are suspected to still be at large. One of the terrorists was a French National known to French Authorities. An Egyptian and Syrian passport were found near the bodies of 2 of the terrorists. One of the Passports had a stamp which indicated recent entry with a wave of Syrian refugees. Some authorities believe that the passports may be fake. The attacks were carried out by three teams. Paris had been under high alert status since the Charlie Hebdo attack last January.
At the Btatclan, A group of terrorists took over 200 hostages and summarily executed scores of others before elite French troops stormed the theater and overpowered the terrorists. A total of 89 people were killed in the Bataclan Theater. One American was killed in the Paris Attacks. She was 23 year old Cal State Long Beach student Nohemi Gonzalez. She was an exchange student studying in Paris form a year.
Most of the terrorists wore belts with the explosive TATP an explosive that can be made with commonly obtained ingredients. Recent police raids in Belgium captured members of a terror cell who were preparing belts with TATP. The Belgian raid cell has been linked with the Paris attacks. TATP is a highly unstable high explosive which can be made from chemicals in items readily available to consumers. . 6,000 Europeans have left for Syria in the past two years. They have been trained and ab estimated 1,500 have used their passports to return to Europe, it is thought to carry out terror attacks.
Intelligence services are analyzing information gathered at the crime scenes and from the bodies of the dead terrorists. They are also monitoring chatter on social media. Chatter among ISIS members and sympathizers expressed joy at the attacks there is no official statement claiming ISIS was responsible for the attacks came until about 24 hours later. In recent days Isis has also blown a Russian commercial Airliner out of the sky in Egypt and a suicide bombing in Beirut Lebanon.
Our hearts go out to the victims, their families and the people of Paris and France. Stand strong and stay strong. They now join with others in a myriad of nations across the globe who have suffered terrorist attacks.
