At least 26 dead in the shooting, hostages taken.

The explosions near the Stade de France are reported to be suicide attacks; nobody is allowed to leave the stadium.

EDIT: Source from France is saying 40 dead, 100 hostages.

Well, as it turns out, religious extremism is the motivation in these attacks.

I'm surprised that it's so easy to own an AK-47 in France, and furthermore how loose security is for packed venues.

What's really distressing about the attacks, besides the people being killed, is that they set a bad precedent for the Muslim refugees coming from the middle east. It's a case of "a few bad apples ruins them all" kind of thing. I'm pretty sure that ISIS is the violent Muslim equivalent of the KKK (devoutly Protestant); but Christians don't get a bad rap for the KKK, and Muslims shouldn't get a bad rap for their extremists either.

Religion at its finest.

Oh well. Could have been worse. More lives could have been lost. Think 9/11.

THey shot up people at a restaurant and all over Paris. They also are holding hostages at a concert hall and now there's reports that they shot at a mall.

This is 9-11 level bad.
