After the shocking Charlie Hebdo massacre, Paris is again under terror siege for the second time. Police officials in France say there has been a shootout at a Paris restaurant and an explosion in a bar near a Paris stadium.
The first shooting reportedly took place at a Cambodian restaurant in the 10th arrondissement of the city, an area with many crowded bars and restaurants.
A second shooting was reported minutes later near a nightclub in the area, Le Bataclan. Here, the gunmen are said to be holding hostages. Later, grenades were said to have been thrown at a stadium in the north of the city where a football match between France and Germany was being held.
Police have not confirmed whether the attacks are connected, or if they're terrorism-related. But US security officials told Reuters they believe the attacks were coordinated, and experts have said that it's possible that a terrorist group is behind the attack.
