-- At least six shootings took place in Paris and three explosions took place at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis late Friday, CNN affiliate BFMTV said. Two or three gunmen entered the Bataclan concert hall while opening fire on law enforcement, BFMTV reported. A source earlier told CNN there were six to eight hostage takers, citing a person they were talking to inside the venue.

Please remember that these attacks in France may have not been conducted by Jihadists. However, regardless of if they were, we must remember they do not represent the majority of Muslim people. If this is ISIS, as it is likely to be, it is very important that we remember that our Muslim neighbors are not at fault here, and we must stand in solidarity with them in this, as they are for us. Please, do not turn to racism and Islamophobia. If you see Islamophobia and racist comments against Muslim people in response to these attacks, say something!

Majestic, the future is electric.

So why/how/what

It happened less than 1h ago, we still don't know why.

Explosions near Stade de France, shootguns in restaurants and hostages in a famous concert venue. Already 18 deaths. 

That's a sad day for my poor France. May they rest in peace.
