Reports are emerging that at least 30 people are dead after shootings in a restaurant in Paris and also an explosion in a bar near a stadium.
It’s believed the shooting took place in the 10th arrondissement of the capital in a restaurant called Petit Cambodge.
Police have arrived on the scene and witnesses say there are people lying on the streets, presumed dead.
Meanwhile, at the Stade de France, north of Paris, it is believed two explosions have occurred during a France-Germany football match, the blast loud enough to be heard over the cheering of the crowd.
President Francois Hollande was removed from the stadium after the shooting, according to iTele.
Sky news reports that there is also an ongoing hostage crisis in the Bataclan, a concert hall in the French capital.
It’s not clear at this stage whether the events are linked.
100 hostages and 35 dead in Paris.

I'll repeat again: Anyone in Paris, stay inside, lock your doors and get away from the windows
