Attacks In Paris: How It All Unfolded

Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins has released more information about the order of Friday's deadly attacks, as the investigation is ongoing.

ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the coordinated strikes and France has been put in a state of emergency as a result.

The exact timing of the various shootings and explosions is still being investigated, but French officials have reported a rough timeline of the various strikes.

Here is how the terror unfolded Friday:

9:20 p.m. Attack 1: Outside the football stadium

Surveillance cameras outside the Stade de France recorded an explosion near Gate D, one of the stadium's entrances. The Paris prosecutor said two bodies were discovered at that site on Rue Rimet and one appeared to be that of a suicide bomber while the other was someone who happened to be standing nearby.

9:25 p.m. Attack 2: A bar and a Cambodian restaurant

A Cambodian restaurant called Le Petit Cambodge and the bar across the street, Le Carillion, were attacked by drive-by shooters in a black car, the prosecutor said today.

Bullet casings were found at the scene and 15 people were killed and 10 others are facing life-threatening injuries.

9:30 p.m. Another attack at the football stadium

A second explosion took place near the Stade de France, this time near Gate H. The only fatality noted at this location was that of the suicide bomber.

9:32 p.m. Attack 3: A bar and an Italian restaurant

People inside a black vehicle similar to the one in the attack at a Cambodian restaurant called Le Petit Cambodge and a nearby bar called La Bonne Biere opened fire outside the Casa Nostra restaurant, on the corners of Rue de la Fontaine au Roi and Rue Faubourg du Temple. Five people were killed in this shooting and at least eight others suffered life-threatening injuries.

9:36 p.m. Attack 4: A French Restaurant

Another shooting took place at another restaurant just over a mile south of the previous attack location. This shooting, at La Belle Equipe, left 19 dead and nine others with life-threatening injuries.

9:40 p.m. Attack 5: A French Restaurant

This attack differed from the other strikes on restaurants because there was no drive-by shooting, but a suicide bomber who went into the restaurant and detonated a device, the prosecutor said. Aside from the suicide bomber, there were no immediate deaths at this location, though there was one serious injury and several less seriously injured individuals.

9:40 p.m. Attack 6: A Concert Venue

The deadliest attack took place at the Bataclan, a concert hall that was hosting an American rock band on the night of the attack, where attackers went inside the venue before opening fire.

"They entered into the concert hall and in the middle of the concert, shot people in the concert hall," the prosecutor said. "The greatest numbers of victims were in front of the stage."

The band, The Eagles of Death Metal, reportedly made it out a back door but, the prosecutor said, audience members were able to hear the attackers mention Syria and Iraq.

12:20 a.m. Saturday Nov. 14

French security forces launch a siege to take back control of the Bataclan after the attackers had taken around 100 people hostage. Three terrorists were killed with explosive devices that they were wearing, and though that differs slightly from earlier reports, Molins said, the prosecutor would not go into more detail, citing the ongoing investigation.

All told, 89 people were killed and "many" others were injured at the concert venue, the prosecutor said.
