During the attacks, in which a bomb was exploded at the same time as gunfire in different locations across the city, at least 120 people are reported to have been killed.

Earlier today, The Queen, issued a statement  saying:

 “Prince Philip and I have been deeply shocked and saddened by the terrible loss of life in Paris. We send our most sincere condolences to you, the families of those who have died and the French people.”

Extremist terror group ISIS have claimed responsibility for the acts, which targeted the Bataclan concert hall, Stade de France sports stadium and several restaurants; President Francois Hollander was at a football match at the stadium and was evacuated.

Around 100 people were taken hostage by two attackers at the Bataclan before police stormed the building.

Seven attackers killed themselves in suicide attacks and at least one was shot by police.

The Prince of Wales also condemned these attacks. He commented during his 67th Birthday barbecue in Perth, Australia, where he is currently on tour with his wife The Duchess of Cornwall.

Charles said:

“In view of the appalling atrocities that took place in Paris overnight, I hope that all of you here will be able to join with me in expressing our particular sympathy and solidarity with everybody in France and also join with me in expressing as well our utter total horror at what has happened.

“Our hearts go out as I am sure you will agree to all those who have been affected in the most dreadful way by these bestial attacks.

So perhaps in view of this I could ask all of you just to observe one minute’s silence in memory of all those who have been affected and lost their lives.”

Clarence house have confirmed that Prince Charles will be sending his condolences to the French Leader.
