ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). Dramatic amateur footage has been released of the aftermath of a series of attacks in Paris on Friday that killed scores of people. Gunmen and bombers attacked restaurants, a concert hall and a sports stadium at locations across Paris in what a shaken President Francois Hollande called an unprecedented terrorist attack. Video shot at the site of two apparent suicide bombings outside the national stadium (Stade de France) in the northern suburb of Saint-Denis shows people running frantically away from the blasts, and then the site of the attack as the cameraman later returns. Footage shot near La Café Royale shows injured being taken away on a stretcher as emergency workers tend to casualties. The apparently coordinated assault came as France, a founder member of the U.S.-led coalition waging air strikes against Islamic State fighters in Syria and Iraq, was on high alert for terrorist attacks ahead of a global climate conference due to open later this month.
