Indian President and Prime Minister have condoled the loss of more than 150 lives in Paris attacks on Friday night, purportedly carrried out by ISIS terrorists aimed at massive gatherings in six places.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was in London on a state visit to the UK, said, “News from Paris is anguishing and dreadful. Prayers with families of the deceased. We are united with people of France in this tragic hour.”
The President of India too strongly condemned the terrorist attacks in Paris. President Pranab Mukherjee said in a tweet: “I strongly condemn the terrorist attacks in Paris, India stands firmly by France. My heart goes out to its people.”
Meanwhile, in Paris, an emergency was decalred and the city was put under curfew not allowing civilians while the terrorists were all killed in the attacks and it is learnt that they were suicide bombers who entered the targeted public places shouting “Allahu Akbar”.
While some Cambodian and Japanese restaurants were also targeted, in the north of the city outside the Stade de France national stadium where France were playing Germany in an international football match, several more were killed.
Outside the national stadium in Paris, some AK-47-wielding gunmen stormed the Bataclan venue and fired methodically at hundreds of screaming concert-goers. In all six locations witnessed indiscriminate firing by gunmen, bringing back the memory of January attacks when some jihadists attacked a Frenach media house and killed journalists.
France has come under IS radar for attacks ever since it joined US-led air strikes in Iraq for over a year and in September joined the global efforts to target the jihadists in Syria.
