At least 43 people are confirmed dead after a series of what appear to be coordinated attacks across Paris, France, late Friday, reports CNN.

Several groups of police have burst into the Bataclan concert venue where 100 people were being held hostage and a series of denotations have been heard from outside, a CNN producer said. A series of gunfire has been heard.

It is now being reported that around 100 hostages people have been killed at the venue and three suspected terrorists were reportedly killed by police. 

One of the explosions at the Stade de France outside Paris appears to be a suicide bombing, a Western intelligence source receiving direct intelligence from the scene told CNN's Deb Feyerick. A dismembered body, consistent with the aftermath of an explosion from that type of device, was found at the scene, the source said.

French authorities have launched a terrorism investigation, Eric Pelletier, a reporter with Le Pariesien, tells CNN Paul Cruickshank. There has been no official claim of responsibility, though ISIS has applauded the attacks on Twitter, Cruickshank reports.

At this hour, there is no credible or specific threat in the United States, according to a U.S. government official.

This does not surprise me, as it is a matter of "When" as opposed to "If." The French are now receiving the products of the choices they made in accepting Muslims wholeheartedly. Islam has NO hierarchy. Islam has 70 different sects. All of them subscribe to Surah 9:5 "Kill the Mushrikun." And they do so unhesitatingly. Christians and Jews are Mushrikun. Muslims that disagree with each other are declared Mushrikun or die by Fatwa. They belong in their OWN countries. Wimps, Wussies, Liberals and the uninformed will welcome them until they too are killed--unless they accept Islam.

Death toll in Paris is at 158 as of 8:14 EST.
We Americans must be prepared to act with extreme prejudice and absolute finality if these terrorists attempt a similar act within our borders. The future of our descendants is at stake and nothing short of total elimination of those trying to destroy Western Civilization can be accepted.

@Leonard Mather. When exactly did you start writing comedy?

Percy when did you become so brain dead

Get ready boys and girls because it will be coming here. Of course, our Great Leader Obama will protect us all. Anybody that believes that last sentence is in the same dream world as Percy.

How many here felt the need to stand up and defend white Christians when McVeigh bombed the Murrah Building or when Eric Rudolph bombed the Olympic venue? My guess none. An interestting article some should read.

You guys are wet dreams for those who use fear to gain control.
What exactly do you say to Muslims born in the US? What country
do you exile them to. Remember when the Irish were the enemy?
How about becoming somewhat knowledgeable before making
thoroughly uninformed comments.
While these attacks are cowardly and disgusting beyond belief
your bravado and testosterone comments don't help.
Do you even know who attacked, and where was all this outrage
when countries in the middle east, Africa, and Asia were attacked?
All in the last 14 days, oh but no white people were killed so no cops
in America cared.

percy sweetie, if you can have some one read the news reports to you you'd find out that ISIS has already claimed responsibility for the attacks. And we all know that there are no muslims involved ISIS, it's all the White cops in this country. So we know that your a "Troll" out to show the world he's an idiot. Congrats, you've succeeded. Blues, Stay Safe.

I am puzzled. If USA is the Great Satan, why do this to the French?

Anyone got an inside track, there?
