On the evening of 13 November 2015, a series of terrorist attacks occurred in Paris. Three suicide bombers struck near the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, followed by suicide bombings and mass shootings at cafés, restaurants and at Bataclan theater in central Paris.
130 people have been killed, 368 people were injured. The attacks were the deadliest in France since World War II and the deadliest in the European Union since the Madrid train bombings in 2004. France had been on high alert since the January 2015 attacks on Charlie Hebdo offices and a Jewish supermarket in Paris that killed 17 people and wounded 22, including civilians and police officers. In response, a three-month state of emergency was declared across the country.
