Story written by Esther Bristol

Dozens of people died in terrorist attacks in Paris, France Friday night.

Attacks took place all over the city and seemed to be targeting areas where large numbers of people congregated, according to CNN.

Two men were killed at the Bataclan Concert Hall after open-firing on the people there with automatic firearms, killing at least 40 people, according to CNN.

At least 100 people died in the attacks, according to The Daily Beast.

The shootings lasted for about 10 to 15 minutes according to CNN.

“It looked like a battlefield, there was blood everywhere, there were bodies everywhere,” said Marc Coupris, 57, according to The Guardian.

Traffic in and out of the country has been stopped and travel within France is limited, according to CNN.

“This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all humanity and the universal values that we share,” President Obama said.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks according to The New York Times.

Six shootings and three bombings have taken place, according to CNN.
