More than a hundred people murdered in France's worst terrorist attack in modern times
Dozens of people are reported dead after what are being called terror attacks across Paris. Police early Saturday freed hostages at a concert hall. The attacks seemed to be planned to hit areas where many people would be gathered on a Friday night in Paris, officials said. CNN will update this story as information comes in:Some reports say as many as 187 were murdered. It's truly awful. Even AFP can't deny what the jihadists yelled out as they carried out their savagery:
CNN affiliate BFMTV reports that French SWAT units have stormed the Bataclan concert hall and that the siege is over. Two attackers were killed, a police union said. Deputy Mayor Patrick Klugman told CNN that assault is over.
Klugman says the death toll in the attacks is going to rise significantly. “We are facing an unknown and historic situation in Paris,” he said.

Francois Hollande was at the stadium when this happened. I hope he understands now what kind of monster they're facing, some of which spawned right within the country. If he doesn't take stern action against all the other scum still dominant within France, then he's failed his country. This was one of the worst attacks caused by negligence and failure to recognize the seriousness of the situation.
Update: Israel's prime minister has offered his condolences and condemned the attack.
