Another Mass Public Killing in France

Breaking:  November 13, 2015.  Over 20 people have been killed in a mass public shooting in France today.  The attacks are reported to have occurred at several separate locations, including the Petite Cambodge restaurant, the Bataclan theater, and in an explosion at a bar near the Stade de France.  The Frence President, Francois Hollande was at the Stade de France, attending a soccer match between France and Germany.

These are early reports.  It is likely that numbers and details will change as more facts become known and investigations proceed.

Update: The Guardian has reports that assailants shouted "Allahu Akbar".  Other sources report the death toll may have risen to 60 or more.  From the Guardian:
Both of these areas are between the sites of the two attacks in the city – the former to the west and the latter to the east. That whole part of the city is popular with people out on nights out.
Another witness, who was at the Batalclan with his mother, is currently in tears live on the radio station. He says he heard the assailants were screaming “Allahu Akbar” while shooting inside the crowd.

Something not mention is that just before the attacks happened, Al Gore was leading a 24 hour "global warming webathon" from the Eiffel Tower.

Looks like the "curse of the ManBearPig" strikes again.
