Dozens are reported dead in Paris following what appear to be several coordinated attacks on Friday night.

The incidents include a shooting in a restaurant, several explosions near a stadium and an ongoing hostage situation at a concert venue where a rock band was performing. French President Francois Hollande has declared a state of emergency and closed the nation's borders as a security measure. The number of fatalities is currently estimated to be as high as 35 or 40 people.
