LIVE IN PARIS : At least 40 dead in Paris shootout and explosions

Police: At least 40 dead in Paris shootout and explosions.

Police officials said at least 40 people have been killed in shootings and
explosions around Paris Friday, in the deadliest violence in France in decades.

A police official said 11 people were killed in a Paris restaurant in the
10th arrondissement. There is a hostage situation the Bataclan theater where
police say around 100 people are being held. Police official at least 35 people
in total have been killed.

Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not
authorized to be publicly named according to police policy.

Also late Friday, two explosions were heard outside the Stade de France
stadium north of Paris during a France-Germany friendly football match. It is
unclear if the explosions were linked to the other events.

A police official confirmed one explosion in a bar near the stadium. It is unclear
whether there are casualties.

An Associated Press reporter in the stadium Friday night heard two explosions
loud enough to penetrate the sounds of cheering fans. Sirens were immediately
heard, and a helicopter was circling overhead.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not
authorized to be publicly named.

The attack comes as France has heightened security measures ahead of a major
global climate conference that starts in two weeks, out of fear of violent
protests and potential terrorist attacks.

Emilioi Macchio, from Ravenna, Italy, was at the Carillon bar near the
restaurant that was targeted, having a beer on the sidewalk when the shooting
started. He said he didn't see any gunmen or victims, but hid behind a corner
then ran away.

"It sounded like fireworks," he said.

France has been on edge since deadly attacks by Islamic extremists in January
on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a kosher grocery that left 20 dead,
including the three attackers.

The restaurant targeted Friday, Le Carillon, is in the same general
neighborhood as the Charlie Hebdo offices.

The country has seen several smaller-scale attacks or attempts since,
including an incident on a high-speed train in August in which American
travelers thwarted a heavily armed Islamic radical trying to attack passengers.
