About 160 people have been killed in the French capital Paris in the deadliest attacks to hit the country since the Second World War.
On Friday night, over 100 people, who had been held hostage by gunmen at the Bataclan concert hall in central Paris, were killed. Officials said the hostage-takers were also killed after police stormed the place.
In another Friday attack, at least 11 people were killed by gunmen outside a bar called Le Carillon in Paris.
The assailants also opened fire at the Petit Cambodge restaurant in the city’s 10th district, killing four people.
Three explosions near Stade de France, the country's national stadium just north of Paris, left several people dead and injured.
At the time of the explosions, French President Francois Hollande was present at the stadium, where France were hosting Germany, but he was evacuated to safety before holding crisis talks with Prime Minister Manuel Valls and Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve at the Interior Ministry building.
