More Than 150 Killed In Paris Terror Attacks, President Obama Says: "This is an attack on all of humanity"


More than 150 people were killed in gunfire and blasts in Paris on Friday evening (Nov. 13), according to CNN. France has declared a national state of emergency and has closed its borders. 

Terrorists, some with AK-47's and some reportedly with bombs strapped to them, attacked sites throughout the French capital. 

The explosion was heard outside of the stadium where a soccer game was happening between France and Germany:
Rapper Fat Joe is one of the many celebrities who spoke out about the attacks and says he's currently in Paris at the moment:



Paris residents have been asked to stay indoors and about 1,500 military personnel are being deployed across the city. 

President Barack Obama condemned the Paris terror attacks, calling them an "outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians" and pledging the U.S. government's assistance to France.
"This is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values we share," Obama said in a statement delivered in the White House Briefing Room.


"We stand prepared and ready to provide whatever assistance the people of France need to respond."
    Obama added, "This is a heartbreaking situation, and obviously those of us here in the United States know what it's like and we've gone through these kinds of episodes ourselves."
