Meanwhile in New York, police said they have bolstered security at several high-profile locations in response to the attacks in Paris, including counterterrorism officers sent to tourist-heavy areas and the French consulate in midtown Manhattan, according to Reuters.

“Teams have been dispatched to crowded areas around the city out of an abundance of caution to provide police presence and public reassurance as we follow the developing situation overseas,” the NYPD said in a statement. Officers have been deployed to other French government locations in the city, and NYPD intelligence bureau officers in France are assisting Paris police “in any way possible”.

Jesus - poor France :(

This is just going to further alienate people - we cannot let this drive a wedge between those law abiding non extremist Muslim communities.

If we resort to right wing nationalism then the Terrorists have truly won :(

4 Attackers killed, 3 by suicide belts 1 by police.

No confirmation of any police officer killed during operation.

As I reported, the news coming out about the attacks, and casualty numbers in particular, is confusing and often conflicted. Earlier the police prefecture said four people had died in the course of the retaking of the Bataclan concert hall from hostage-takers; many media took that to mean police or security officers.

It now appears the four might be a reference to the attackers: three of whom, according to AFP, reportedly detonated explosive suicide belts.

'All attackers are dead' – police

The Paris police prefect has now confirmed that the attackers at the Bataclan rock venue blew themselves up with suicide belts as police closed in, killing four.

He said the gunmen first sprayed cafes outside the venue with machine gunfire, then went inside the concert hall and killed more before the assault by security forces.

The prefect, Michel Cadot, said one set of attackers was at the Stade de France, and at nearly the same time the second group attacked within the city.

Cadot said all the attackers are believed dead, although authorities are hunting for any possible accomplices.

There are people trying to justify these attacks by stating that since Muslims are poor and discriminated against it gives them a right to murder. In the in the exact words but the implication of it.

Absolutely shocking. So many innocent lives lost. This is the direct result of US-Germany-France spearheaded multi-culture tolerance propaganda, unnecessary involvement in wars in the Middle-East and resulting influx of refugees to Europe. Millions of them, and there is noone who can say what their intentions are. European Union is dictating how many of the refugees we have to take in, I understand the concept but it is not a solution nor does islamic values match the conservative and largely atheistic population of Estonia. This can not happen.

Let's not forget christianity was brought into Europe with blood and sword, history repeats itself with islam. Unfortunately this is just the start unless politicians change the crash course we're heading to. The small fracture of terrorists are stereotyping the word "islam".

Sad times, let's all light a candle. Rest in peace, we're all with you.
