Three coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris, France killed 129 people and injured hundreds more Friday night. The attacks occurred at the Stade de France, where the French and German national teams were playing, Bataclan concert hall, and restaurants Le Carillon, Le Petit Cambodge, Café Bonne Bière, and Comptoir Voltaire.

Terrorist group ISIS—Islamic State in Iraq and Syria—has claimed responsibility for the massacre, and promises similar destruction in Moscow and Washington D.C.

Due to the attacks, France has closed its borders. Moreover, hundreds of people around the world support France with prayer and condolences.
