France has declared a national state of emergency and tightened borders after at least 120 people were killed in a night of gun and bomb attacks in Paris.

Eighty people were reported killed after gunmen burst into the Bataclan concert hall and took dozens hostage.

The siege ended when security forces stormed the building.

People were shot dead at bars and restaurants at five other sites in Paris. Eight attackers are reported to have been killed.

Police believed all of the gunmen were dead but it was unclear if any accomplices were still on the run after the string of near-simultaneous attacks.

Paris residents have been asked to stay indoors and about 1,500 military personnel are being deployed across the city.

Attack sites:

Bataclan concert venue, 50 boulevard Voltaire, 11th district - gun and suicide bomb attacks

Stade de France, St Denis, just north of Paris - explosions near venue as France played Germany in football friendly

Le Carillon bar, 18 rue Alibert, 10th district - gun attack

Le Petit Cambodge restaurant, 20 rue Alibert, 10th district - gun attack

La Belle Equipe, 92 rue de Charonne, 11th district - gun attack

La Casa Nostra restaurant, 2 rue de la Fontaine au roi, 11th district - gun attack
