Friday night’s deadly terror attacks in Paris, in which at least 129 people were killed, took place at six locations and were carried out by three teams of terrorists working in unison, according to French prosecutors. The first explosion took place at 9.20 p.m. outside Gate D of the Stade De France stadium during a France vs. Germany friendly soccer match.
Reports said an attacker holding a ticket to the game was frisked as he tried to enter the stadium. His suicide vest was detonated as he backed away from security guards.
Ten minutes later, a second suicide bomber detonated his explosive vest near Gate H of the stadium. A third suicide bomber exploded his device near a McDonald's restaurant close to the stadium around 9.53 p.m. The three suicide bombers and one passerby were killed in the attacks.
Meanwhile, across town in Paris’ 10th district, gunmen pulled up at Le Carillon restaurant in a black car at approximately 9:25 p.m. and began shooting at customers. The attackers also targeted patrons at Le Petit Cambodge restaurant across the street, with the two attacks killing 15 people in total.
Seven minutes later five people were killed when gunmen arriving in a black car shot at customers outside the bar La Bonne Biere.
Then, at 9:36 p.m. gunmen, again traveling in a black vehicle, opened fire at customers eating outside La Belle Equipe restaurant, killing 19.
Several minutes later, at 9.40 p.m., a fourth suicide bomber detonated his device at the Comptore Voltaire restaurant, killing himself and seriously injuring one other person.
At around the same time, three gunmen arrived at the Bataclan concert venue in a black Volkswagen Polo.
After opening fire on concertgoers inside, witnesses said, the men gathered hostages near the stage and made a brief address about Iraq and Syria.
At 11:20 p.m., French special forces stormed the building, killing one of the three terrorists.
The other two detonated suicide vests, and 89 people died at the scene.
An international manhunt was launched for French citizen Salah Abdeslam, who is suspected of being involved in the attacks.
