Francois Fillon, France's former prime minister, tweets: "War is upon us"

La guerre est parmi nous. Nous résisterons, nous nous battrons ensemble.

Louis, inside the Bataclan, told France Info radio the men opened fire and shouted "Allahu Akbar".

The men came in and started shooting. Everyone fell to the ground. It was hell.

I took my mum, and we hid. Someone near us said they have gone, so we ran out. I was only thinking of escaping.
