After last nights attacks in Paris, the tragic death toll is now more than 160 people, and 200 wounded. At the moment 30,000 Police officers have set about the streets of Paris, while the French Government meet continuously.

The French Police pointed out that the main attackers have all been killed , however their accomplices are still at large. Besides a large Police presence, they have asked citizens to remain in their homes, as a state of emergency is declared.
An additional 1500 soldiers have been mobilized to help secure the streets of Paris.
