Unedited cell phone footage of people escaping from the Bataclan theater in Paris was released Saturday in the aftermath of terror attacks there and elsewhere in Paris that killed 129 people and wounded over 350. The video shows people climbing out of windows and hanging on ledges as they fled into the streets of Paris amid the noise of rapid gunfire from Islamic State group gunmen. The video was shot by an off-duty French reporter who lives nearby the stricken theater.
The gunmen took hostages inside the theater and are alleged to have begun killing them one by one until SWAT teams stormed the building and freed those who were still alive.
The killings at the theater were part of coordinated terror attacks that occurred in the French capital Friday night and into the early hours of Saturday morning.
More footage emerged later Saturday.
