Paris attacks: What we know
Paris has suffered a night of deadly attacks, described by President Francois Hollande as "unprecedented", BBC informs.
A series of shootings, a bomb blast and then a hostage siege have resulted in the deaths of scores of people.
A state of emergency has been declared and the military have been deployed.
This is what we know so far, BBC reports.

21:20 (20:20 GMT) Rue Alibert attacks

Le Carillon

A succession of attacks erupted some time after 21:00 in areas popular
for Paris nightlife in the 10th district (arrrondissement) of the capital, not far from the Place de la Republique.
First reports of gunfire came from Le Carillon bar, at 18 rue Alibert. Witnesses initially thought a firework had gone off until people realised that an unmasked man was opening fire with a semi-automatic gun. One witness described a man getting out of a car with a heavy calibre weapon.
"People dropped to the ground. We put a table over our heads to protect us," said Ben Grant, who was with his wife at the back of the bar.

Le Petit Cambodge

Witnesses then describe how the man then crossed the road and turned his gun on a restaurant, Le Petit Cambodge (Little Cambodia).
Witnesses spoke of more than 10 people being killed and injured in the Rue Alibert attacks.

Outside McDonalds

Minutes later, a shooting was reported not far away, outside a McDonalds restaurant near the popular Canal St Martin. Reports said a car was left riddled with bullets and a motorbike abandoned on the ground.
21:30 Stade de France
On the northern fringe of Paris, France were playing Germany at the Stade de France stadium, in an international football friendly seen as a big game ahead of the Euro 2016 football championships in France. The game was being broadcast on TF1, one of the main national TV channels. President Francois Hollande was there.
About half an hour after kick-off, the first of at least two explosions was heard. It was audible within the stadium and the president was immediately led to safety.
There were unconfirmed reports of at least one suicide bombing as two fast food outlets and a brasserie near the stadium were attacked.
At one point, a section of the crowd spilled on to the pitch in panic. After the match, which France won 2-0, players watched events unfold on monitors in the tunnel.

21:50 Rue de Charonne attack

The next reports of shootings came to the south of the first restaurant attacks, at La Belle Equipe bar in the rue de Charonne in the 11th district.
Two men were seen opening fire, spraying bullets at the terrace of the cafe.
"It lasted at least three minutes," one witness said. "Then they got back in their car and headed towards Charonne station."

22:00 Bataclan concert venue

The deadliest attack of the night came in the 11th district in Boulevard Voltaire where several gunmen raided a well known concert venue where Californian rock group Eagles of Death Metal was playing.
Reports said the attackers had stormed the hall, shooting in the air. One of the attackers was said to have shouted "God is great" in Arabic.
A hostage crisis had now begun.
By now, President Hollande was in crisis talks with Prime Minister Manuel Valls as well as Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve.
He gave a midnight live address on national TV announcing a state of emergency throughout France and declared the country's borders shut.
The order was then given to send elite security forces into the concert hall. Shots rang out at 00:30 and reports began to emerge of the scale of the bloodshed wrought by the attackers, with dozens reported dead.
Other attacks were reported during the evening, including at the Avenue de la Republique and on the Boulevard de Beaumarchais close to the Bastille.
