One of the most brazen terror attacks ever in the west left 129 people dead and the horror was widely documented on social media.
Shootings and explosions rocked Paris when suicide bombers and terrorists with high powered AK-47s stormed the city, cutting down innocent civilians in six locations.

An explosion was heard on television outside of the Stade de France where spectators, including French President Francois Hollande, were gathered to watch the French national team play the German national team in a friendly game, Fox News reported.
The greatest carnage of the night however, came at a concert hall where three gunmen took hostages and slaughtered more than 100 who were assembled to watch American hard rock band Eagles of Death Metal in concert.
Concert goers who escaped the massacre before hostages were taken said the terrorists shouted “This is for Syria” and “Alahu Akhbar” as they shot victims from the balcony.

One of those inside told The Guardian he thought his final moments were before him.
“It looked like a battlefield, there was blood everywhere, there were bodies everywhere,” Marc Coupris, 57, told The Guardian. “I was at the far side of the hall when shooting began. There seemed to be at least two gunmen. They shot from the balcony. “I saw my final hour unfurl before me, I thought this was the end. I thought, ‘I’m finished, I’m finished,'” he added.
Pictures and video of the carnage where shared on social media.
