At least 18 people have been killed so far (though some reports have the death toll at 40) and many more have been injured after a series of obviously coordinated attacks by Muslim barbarians on the city of Paris.
A witness told France Info radio the men opened fire and shouted “Allahu Akbar”.
The men came in and started shooting. Everyone fell to the ground. It was hell.
I took my mum, and we hid. Someone near us said they have gone, so we ran out. I was only thinking of escaping.
We’re out now. I think people are still inside.
It’s a nightmare – a nightmare…
