Paris Soccer Explosion Caught on Video
Paris appears to be under a coordinated terrorist attack on Friday as at least 35 people are dead in multiple shootings and explosions in multiple sites.
Two explosions were heard outside the Stade de France stadium where a France-Germany friendly soccer match was being played. French President Francois Hollande was in the stadium watching when the explosions occurred.
Videos of the explosions have surfaced on social media as more reports of the attacks currently unfold. At the time of this writing, there are 100 people held hostage at the Bataclan concert venue where a heavy metal band was playing.
President Hollande has closed all borders and has declared a state of emergency.
