A series of shootings and explosions horrified Paris on Friday night. With six attacks, more than 120 people are dead, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said Friday. (Follow the Two-Way blog for the latest news.)

Key locations of violence include restaurants, a concert hall and a soccer stadium just outside Paris. French President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency, calling for additional restrictions at the country's borders and for military reinforcements in Paris. President Obama called the attacks "outrageous" and pledged U.S. support for France.
