    French police report shootout and explosion in Paris

    French police report shootout and explosion in Paris

    By ANGELA CHARLTON and LORI HINNANT 5 minutes ago







    PARIS (AP) — Police officials in France on Friday reported a shootout in a Paris restaurant and an explosion in a bar near a Paris stadium. It was unclear if the events were linked.



    BFM television reports there were several dead in the restaurant shooting in the 10th arrondissement of the capital. Two police officials confirmed the shooting but had no information about casualties.
    Also late Friday, two explosions were heard outside the Stade de France stadium north of Paris during a France-Germany friendly football match.
    A police official confirmed one explosion in a bar near the stadium. It is unclear whether there are casualties.
    An Associated Press reporter in the stadium Friday night heard two explosions loud enough to penetrate the sounds of cheering fans. Sirens were immediately heard, and a helicopter was circling overhead.
    The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be publicly named.
    The attack comes as France has heightened security measures ahead of a major global climate conference that starts in two weeks, out of fear of violent protests and potential terrorist attacks.
    Emilioi Macchio, from Ravenna, Italy, was at the Carillon bar near the restaurant that was targeted, having a beer on the sidewalk when the shooting started. He said he didn't see any gunmen or victims, but hid behind a corner then ran away.
    "It sounded like fireworks," he said.
    France has been on edge since deadly attacks by Islamic extremists in January on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a kosher grocery that left 20 dead, including the three attackers.
    The restaurant targeted Friday, Le Carillon, is in the same general neighborhood as the Charlie Hebdo offices.
    The country has seen several smaller-scale attacks or attempts since, including an incident on a high-speed train in August in which American travelers thwarted a heavily armed Islamic radical trying to attack passengers.

    That's what they get for allowing hostile foreigners to invade their country. Expect more.

    "Kalashnikov attack"....doesn't France have strict gun control? Apparently that's not working out very well for them.

    Why has France become a target for recent terror attacks?

    'Gunmen shouted Allah Akbar'

    Louis, inside the Bataclan, told France Info radio the men opened fire and shouted "Allah Akbar".
    He only saw silhouettes. He said:
    The men came in and started shooting. Everyone fell to the ground. It was hell.
    I took my mum, and we hid. Someone near us said they have gone, so we ran out. I was only thinking of escaping.
    We're out now. I think people are still inside.
    It's a nightmare - a nightmare.

    That multi-culturalism is a real winner for Europe.

    More than 60 dead, according to BFMTV. "Hundreds" held hostage in the Bataclan night club. Security forces fear that there are "several hostage takings underway" in Paris.
    France is on "multiple terror attack" mode.

    Syrian transitional government conference starts either Saturday or Sunday in Paris.

    According to WRH, ISIS affiliates claim responsibility.

    FF. probably no dead or wounded.
