In Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said the assaults on Friday were carried out by seven terrorists operating in three separate, highly coordinated teams. The first attack was at the Stade de France, at 9:20 p.m. when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside during a friendly soccer match between France and Germany. Other attacks happened at cafes and at the Bataclan concert hall, where 89 people were killed during a performance by the California rock band Eagles of Death Metal.
At least one American — Nohemi Gonzalez, 20, a college student from California — was among the dead, according to California State University in Long Beach, where she went to school. Mark Toner, a spokesperson for the U.S. State Department, confirmed some Americans were also among the injured.
