French President Francois Hollande has closed his country’s borders after a series of attacks across Paris late Friday killed dozens.
In a televised address, Hollande declared a state of emergency hours after the first attack.
A French police official told VOA that 41 people have been confirmed dead in the attacks on restaurants and near a stadium. Officials say at least 15 people were killed at the Bataclan concert hall and several dozen hostages were taken. Later, shots were reported at Les Halles in central Paris.
