"There was a lockdown at the Stade de France due to possible explosions, according to French media," CNN reported. "President Francois Hollande was at the stadium, watching France playing world champions Germany in a friendly soccer match, but he left to go to the Interior Ministry."

A second explosion was reported outside a bar in Paris, but the number of causalities from that incident could not be confirmed.

It is not yet clear whether or not the attacks were terrorist acts. French officials are encouraging residents to stay indoors.
