Deaths reported in Paris restaurant shooting


Shots have been fired at a restaurant in Paris and there was an explosion near France's national stadium, according to reports.

The Associated Press said fatalities had been reported following a "shootout" at a restaurant, believed to be near the Place de la Republique, and that ambulances were at the scene.

In an apparently separate incident explosions were heard from within the Stade de France, about five or six miles from the city centre, where France were playing Germany in an international football friendly.

The AP reported an explosion at a bar near the stadium, and that it was "unclear" if anybody had been hurt.
