It is feared over 140 people were killed in Friday night’s Paris terror attacks in the deadliest attack in Paris since World War II.

At least 100 people were murdered inside a theatre where hostages were taken and prosecutor Francois Molins said the death toll in the attacks across six sites could rise.

Security forces killed at least five of the attackers across the city, while  French president Francois Hollande closed the country’s borders and declared a state of emergency.

The attacks come after the Charlie Hebdo atrocity, which took place in January and saw 12 people killed after gunmen stormed the offices of the satirical magazine.

Photographs emerged throughout the evening, showing the true horrors of the events that were unfolding in the French capital.
