NEW DELHI: Following the horrific serial attacks in Paris, the Indian Embassy in France has opened its helpline number for stranded Indian citizens in the terror struck city.
“Indian Embassy telephone 0140507070 open, we hope all Indians are safe. Our prayers with families affected and solidarity with France,” Indian Ambassador to France Mohan Kumar tweeted. The nation was left in mourning and the world in unbelievable shock as scores were killed in the coordinated attacks late on Friday.
The deadly attack reportedly began in the French capital at a soccer stadium where a match was underway as explosions set off. Simultaneously, terrorists armed with AK-47s and bombs strapped to them began attacking in different sites throughout the city.
A bloodbath was reported from the Bataclan concert hall where more than 100 were killed as terrorists opened fire for 15 minutes and even shot hostages at point blank range.
