Paris is seemingly under attack after a series of incidents happened across the French capital.

Reports suggest that a number of incidents have taken place across the city.

Explosions were heard at the Stade de France as the French team hosted Germany, while the BBC report that 15 people have been killed near the Bataclan arts centre.

Furthermore, there is believed to be a hostage situation with as many as 100 people being held at a concert.

President Francois Hollande, meanwhile, is believed to have been moved to safety having been in attendance at the football match at the Stade de France this evening. Many have chosen to remain within the stadium, as shown by the images below.
