At least 127 people have died after a seven separate attacks took place across Paris last night.

An estimated 118 of these were killed after being taken hostage at the Batlacan theatre, where the Eagles of Death were performing. Attacks also took place at the Statde de France, where France and Germany were playing against each other, and at two restaurants – Le Petit Cambodge and Le Carillon.

Boulevard Beaumarchais, Rue de Charonne, Avenue de le Republique and Boulevard Voltaire were also affected. As a result, a state emergency has been declared in France – the first time this has happened since the 2005 Paris riots.

Following the attacks, the French foreign ministry said airports would stay open with flights and train services continuing as normal. However, there are some changes to travel in and out of the city.
