France: Forensic experts inspect suicide bomber's body outside cafe 'Comptoir Voltaire'

France, Paris
November 14, 2015 at 08:35 GMT +00:00 · Published

Police officers and forensic experts inspected the body and suicide belt of one of the Paris terror attack suicide bombers, while searching for evidence inside and outside the 'Comptoir Voltaire' cafe at Boulevard Voltaire, Saturday, following multiple attacks across the French capital, which left over 120 dead and at least 200 injured.

The suicide bomb attacker reportedly detonated his explosive belt outside the cafe killing himself. No other casualties were reported.

At least 120 people were killed and more than 200 left injured after a series of coordinated attacks were carried out at six different locations across Paris on Friday evening. Eighty-seven people were killed after gunmen opened fire during a concert at the Bataclan theatre, taking dozens hostage before detonating suicide bombs. Police stormed the venue, freeing the hostages and killing one of the attackers. Up to 40 other people were killed in attacks at the French national stadium and a string of popular bars and restaurants.

Authorities say that at least three people were killed after three suicide bombers detonated explosives in the vicinity of the Stade de France as the French and German national football teams were playing a friendly match. French President Francois Hollande and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier were at the match at the time of the attack and had to be evacuated from the stadium. Dozens more were killed after gunmen carried out attacks on two bars and two restaurants in the 10th and 11th districts of Paris.

Authorities say that eight attackers were killed - seven detonating suicide bombs and one shot dead by security forces in the Bataclan. French police are now searching for any other possible attackers or accomplices. Hollande described the attacks as an act of terrorism and has declared a state of emergency in France.
