In January this year, Islamic terrorists killed 16 people in Paris, and now terror has revisited the French capital 10-fold with over 120 people being killed in multiple terrorist attacks that occurred on Friday night.
As yet unidentified terrorists committed six coordinated shooting and bombing attacks against civilians late in the evening, the worst one being carried out at a concert hall where it’s believed over a hundred people were massacred.
Multiple reports say that IS supporters have been celebrating the killings.
