Over 100 people were killed Friday night in a series of shootings and explosions across Paris according to French officials.

French President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency across France, closing its borders after dozens were killed during the attacks.

“It’s a terrible ordeal that has once again been afflicted on us. We know where it comes from, who these criminals and terrorists are,” said President Hollande during a televised address.

Here’s how the media around the world is covering the attacks:

    A beheading in Woolwich, a suicide bomb in Beijing, a blown-up marathon in
    Boston, a shooting in the head of a young Pakistani girl seeking education, a
    destroyed shopping mall in Nairobi – and so it continues, in the name of Islam,
    from south London to Timbuktu. It is time to take stock, especially on the left,
    since these things are part of the world’s daily round.

    Leave aside the parrot-cry of “Islamophobia” for a moment. I will return to
    it. Leave aside, too, the pretences that it is all beyond comprehension.
    “Progressives” might ask instead: what do Kabul, Karachi, Kashmir, Kunming and
    a Kansas airport have in common? Is it that they all begin with “K”? Yes. But
    all of them have been sites of recent Islamist or, in the case of Kansas, of
    wannabe-Islamist, attacks; at Wichita Airport planned by a Muslim convert ready
    to blow himself up, and others, “in support of al-Qaeda in the Arabian
    Peninsula”. “We cannot stop lone wolves,” a British counterterrorism expert
    told us after Woolwich. Are they “lone”? Of course not.

    A gas facility in southern Algeria, a hospital in Yemen, an Egyptian police
    convoy in the Sinai – it’s complex all right – a New Year’s party in the
    southern Philippines, a railway station in the Caucasus, a bus terminal in
    Nigeria’s capital, and on and on, have all been hit by jihadis, with hostages taken,
    suicide belts detonated, cars and trucks exploded, and bodies blown to bits.
    And Flight MH370? Perhaps. In other places – in Red Square and Times Square, in
    Jakarta and New Delhi, in Amman and who-knows-where in Britain – attacks have
    been thwarted. But in 2013 some 18 countries got it in the neck (so to
    speak) from Islam’s holy warriors….
