"This is for Syria!" screamed one of the attackers as he sprayed gunfire yesterday night at one of the six sites in Paris, in an obvious reference to France's combat role against the Islamic State.

The audacious terrorists -- all eight of whom were later reported killed -- also chose to target a football stadium where President Francois Hollande was viewing a France-Germany match. He was quickly evacuated.

One witness said the killers didn't wear masks and looked young. The most horrific of the near simultaneous attacks took place at the Bataclan theatre where the terrorists burst in, opened fire, reloading their automatics at least thrice, took people hostages and, as security forces stormed it, exploded themselves, killing over 100 civilians.

Later, he visited the concert hall and vowed revenge. The terrorists, he announced, would be fought 'without mercy', media reports stated.

This morning, French security forces announced that all the attackers were dead but a hunt was on for possible accomplices. Residents in Paris were told to stay indoors. The city was swarming with soldiers.
