THEGUARDIAN.COM REPORTED…. The French president François Hollande says a state of emergency will be declared across France, adding that several dozen people have been killed in terrorist attacks around Paris.

In a statement just delivered, the president of the republic said that its borders would be closed and military units were being deployed in Paris to prevent further attacks. Hollande said a cabinet meeting was about to start to discuss the response to the attacks.
