Paris Attacks: 21 Front Pages From Around The World

A series of seemingly coordinated terror attacks left more than 120 people dead in Paris on Friday evening. In what has been described as the most deadly act of terrorism in French history, the attacks took place in seven locations, including shootings inside a concert hall and cafés in central Paris and a bombing outside the national soccer stadium.

President François Hollande declared a state of emergency and sealed the country's borders in response, as hundreds of additional French troops attempted to secure the capital.
