Germany: 'We are united' projected on French Embassy in Berlin after Paris attacks

Germany, Berlin
November 14, 2015 at 06:37 GMT +00:00 · Published

Candles were placed outside the French embassy in Berlin, Saturday, in the hours following multiple deadly attacks on Paris. A projectionist shone the words “we are united” onto the embassy in a sign of solidarity with the victims. Over 150 people are feared to have been killed in multiple attacks across the French capital.

At least 118 people were killed in a now-finished siege at the Bataclan arts centre. The incident began when gunmen entered the packed venue, which was filled with music fans, of all the attackers - at least one blowing himself up as police closed in.

In response, French President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency and deployed military reinforcements in and around the city as well as increasing security at borders with all neighbouring countries. All the attackers are believed to have died, according to police, though they are continuing their search for accomplices who may still be at large.

Speaking to press earlier Hollande said "there is dread, but in the face of this dread, there is a nation that knows how to defend itself, that knows how to mobilise its forces and, once again, will defeat the terrorists."

Shootings and explosions were reported from a total six locations across the French capital, including the Stade de France, where suspected twin suicide bombers struck alongside a further explosion. The blasts could be heard inside the ground, where Hollande was watching France host Germany.

In the 10th district on Rue Alibert, at least one man opened fire with an automatic weapon at the Le Carillon restaurant, resulting in several casualties. More victims were reported in a second gun attack on a restaurant, this time La Belle Equipe on Rue de Charonne, in the nearby 11th district. At Rue de la Fontaine au Roi, gunmen are believed to have killed five people while at least one more person passed away as a result of gunshot wounds at Boulevard Voltaire.
