NEW DELHI -  President Pranab Mukherjee has condemned the deadly terrorist attacks in the French capital Paris and expressed anguish over the incident in which at least 140 people were killed.


The President tweeted, "Strongly condemn terrorist attacks in Paris, India stands firmly by France, my heart goes out its people".

As many as 120 people have died in a popular Paris concert hall, where attackers seized hostages yesterday in one of at least six terror attacks that unfolded across the city in the deadliest violence in Paris has seen since World War II.

At least two explosions were heard near the Stade de France national stadium, where a France-Germany friendly soccer match was being played, attended by President Francois Hollande.

After the attacks, President Hollande declared a state of emergency and announced that, he was closing the country's borders. Mr Hollande, who had to be evacuated from the stadium when the bombs went off outside, said in a televised address that the nation would stand firm and united.

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack.
