    Some sources seem to confirm the six locations so far.

    The rumour that they are killing hostages one by one is coming from text messages by hostage sent from inside the concert hall.

    No surprise at this point that it involves muslims; "Allah is great" shouted through concert halls. Explosions from inside the past 20 mins.

    But it's not confirmed that it was Isis, al Qaeda, etc, yet, right? I mean, we know it was, but there's always a chance it's not, however slim?

    New York intensifying security.

    CNN (whose coverage is ... not good...) was reporting France's president was at the soccer/football game. He's fine, but he had been there at some point tonight.

    My heart is so heavy! I can't believe what I'm reading. It's all just so terrible.
    You don't have to do everything all by yourself.

    Hollande was led into a ministry building I think. No one has claimed anything yet, not at all. But the scale of this thing suggests of course an intensely large and orchestrated attack. I can't sleep until we know more. I was contemplating taking the train to Paris tomorrow, but the borders are now closed.

    I have Red Bull Sugarfree cans, and a bottle of red wine, as well as... a chatwindow with you . Hopefully it will get us through the night, eventually one of us will fall asleep.

    BBC terrorist expert has stated that this is happening to "cause fear." No shit. Furthermore, the plan is:

    1) disrupt the West
    2) instil fear
    3) fear leads to hating muslims, hate leads to muslims fearing for their own lives
    4) muslims become radicalised in their fear and being cornered, leading to escalation and retaliation

    at that point at yelled at BBC live feed and almost spilled whisky. GOSH REALLY, REALLY BBC. THIS IS NEWS.

    There was a blitz at the Bataclan theater. It is now over, some terrorists are dead (even though they should have been tied to horse, dragged through the streets and then subjected to public hanging), no word on the hostages just yet. They shut down the area, I fear the worst.
