Paris is under an ongoing terrorist attack, the second one this year. There has been at least one mass shooting at a cafe, a hostage situation in a concert venue and a bomb set off outside the Stade de France, where France and Germany were playing a friendly.

The explosion was clearly audible during the game.

Noted soccer writer Simon Kuper was at the stadium during the game and chronicled the incident.
