>> savagery in six separate locations. you see them right there including the stadium where the explosions were heard, the bataclan theatre and four restaurants. 127 dead. that number could climb. >> two more in the hospital. 70 in critical condition. eight terrorists have been killed. seven by suicide vests. we do have full team coverage this morning and abc's matt gutman is on the scene for us and starts us off. good morning, matt. >> reporter: want to give you a sense for the chaos along this street. right beyond those moving vans is that theater and after the police initially burst in and neutralized the assailants the first floor was so jammed they had to lower the dead and wounded to the street. right underneath at a bar, a triage center was set up. bleeding people came running out. everywhere you look here today you see bloody articles of clothing.
terrified fans fleeinging the bataclan concert hall. bystand e bystanders rushing to help carrying some by their arms and legs. a small venue in one of the most popular parts. inside a reportedly sold out to see the american rock band eagles of death metal. the drummer's brother saying the band was only six songs into their set when gunfire erupted. >> it was so loud it was louder than the band, and they all hit the stage floor, and as they got up to try to evacuate, they saw men with machine guns just shooting anything and everything. >> reporter: shortly before :00 p.m., four heavily armed gunmen dressed in black opening fire shooting at random. >> i saw people starting to panic. people were running away. >> reporter: minutes later
the assail apartments stormed the theater according to eyewitnesses firing their ak-47s nonstop for a minute of 10 to 15 minutes stopping only to reload their weapons. inside, others finding places to hide. witnesses report hearing the gunmen shout allahu akbar. police say more than 100 trapped as high point solutionss for three hours. shortly after midnight armed officers storming the concert hall. amid the incredible loss of life, rescuers helping 40 people to safety. the four attackers among the dead inside the theater. three killed by their own suicide belts. terrorists also targeting france's packed national stadium. three explosions ringing out during a france/germany soccer match. >> the crowd started moving. everyone started panicking. it was impossible to leave. the trains were blocked. people everywhere. it's very stressful. >> reporter: like the other targets across the city,
not a state building or popular tourist . turn nothing horrific scenes. >> i realize she wasn't breathing. it was really awful. really awful. >> now, in a city known for its fairly low-key security response this was crawling with actual military troops and, of course, the medical response to this disaster last night was unprecedented. paula and george. >> matt, thanks very much. let's bring in our chief investigative correspondent brian ross. the french president says isis is responsible. they claim responsibility and now you found that passport? a very important clue. a syrian passport found on the body of one of the attackers. >> and, brian, right now they think they've gotten all eight
of the attackers. that's what the french police say but they have a huge search going on for possible accomplices. >> absolutely. there certainly were accomplices in this case. who provided this emwith the weapon, the vehicles and where did they meet to put together this very synchronized attack. >> one of the big questions this he'll have to get at, was it inspired by isis and coordinated all incise france or outside direction. >> the french president alleges it was coordinated outside, planned outside and the attackers were sent in. they chose their sites because the game between france and germany represented their enemies and, two, the rock concert with the american band was what they call a party of perversity. that's why they chose that. >> this appears to be the third major attack by isis in just the last two weeks. >> that's right. there was the bombing of the russian jet, the alleged bombing of the alleged russian jet, the bombs in beirut and now this, a wave of terry, isis has claimed responsibility for all three attacks. >> okay, brian ross, thanks very much. moments ago, i spoke with an eyewitness in that bataclan theatre.
ginny watson, thanks for joining us. you were on the first floor balcony inside that concert hall. >> yeah, i was in the venue. >> what happened? >> it was crazy. i don't know what to say. i was there. we heard shots right -- we were in the middle of the concert, you know, the band was playing. it was great, there was a good atmosphere, we were having fun and all of a sudden we heard shots and like i mentioned before, i didn't believe it at first. i thought it was a joke. i thought, what's going on because i didn't see the shots. i just heard them, and having never been under attack in my life, i couldn't -- i didn't think it was actually real gunshots, and then all of a sudden people started screaming, and that's when we realized with my two friends that we had to get out, and we started ducking, you know, hiding behind the seats getting down and luckily near to where we were, there was a safety exit, and we
managed to get into the staircase of that safety exit. we were there for about 30 seconds to a minute before opening the doors, because i think they were outside in the streets when we got out, and then the doors opened and somebody said it's safe. we can get out and we all ran and it was, you know -- >> before you got out what could you see of what was happening? >> yeah, well, that's the thing. because they started downstairs, obviously because, you know, when they came in, i think they came in with -- they ran a car into the entrance, i'm not sure, i think i heard that. they started shooting downstairs so i didn't see -- i didn't see the people shooting. i didn't see the, you know, the kind of fire that the kalashnikovs gives off, i suppose. i don't know. all i heard, i just heard a shooting but it was like continuous shooting it was like bang, bang, bang. >> how long did it go on? >> it went on for awhile. they were just shooting. they just didn't stop. obviously, you know, they just wanted to kill as many people as possible. >> it must have been so horrifying. >> it was -- yeah, it's horrible. i was very chilled last night.
i mean, i had loads of alcohol. i'm a bit less chilled today. i feel -- i woke up this morning feeling, yeah, my -- you know, i felt i was -- yeah, i feel quite horrible. i don't know. i'm trying to keep it all together. i think i won't stop so i'm trying to maintain a cool attitude, but i feel very distressed because i knew people there. some of the people i knew, apparently somebody got shot, not people i know personally but people of people who know -- i mean, just various acquaintances. it's just sad that this would happen in a place where people come together to listen to good music. you know, it's just -- it's depressing. >> and what's it like in paris this morning? >> i don't know. i haven't been out yet. i'm going to go out later because i want to join my family in burgundy, so i should be getting a train hopefully. we'll see, but i haven't been out yet, so i don't know what the atmosphere is like in paris. i don't think it's very rosy and happy. i think people are staying
indoors. >> i imagine so. ginny watson, thanks very much for your time. >> thank you. >> so much horror to absorb right there. >> and they're just faced with such a devastating reality today, george. and a terrifying night for the city of paris. this morning they're waking up in shock, and people are watching all over the world. we spoke with several other survivors besides ginny who witnessed that carnage. >> we were walking, and we heard a handful of gunshots. >> we heard a bunch of gunshots, maybe eight to ten, and then there was kind of a pause, and there were a few more. >> and police crouched behind like the doorways and trees. >> i don't think anybody around really understood what was going on. >> you could hear the gunshots again and again, and we waited for the terrorists to reload again their weapons. >> we just turned around and ran for our lives. >> there was lines of ambulances and ambulances running by. >> somebody saw a body lying in the street. >> i saw a couple of people
wounded. i saw this one girl with a wound in her thigh. >> so, everybody at that point lying on the floor to escape the bullets. >> and we just stood there in silence. >> i pray for the victims and for the families. most of them died meters away from me. some of them on me. so i pray for them. >> somber words there, and abc's terry moran is on the streets of parris this morning. terry, the french government has tightened the borders and now they're telling people to stay indoor, correct? >> reporter: that is true, paula, and, in fact, a word that comes to mind here in paris is a word you never associate with this city, subdued. traffic is light.
many people have stayed inside, it seems. those who are out are speaking in quiet tones and even it seems not running and hustling around. this is a city, as you have heard, in shock, and here on what -- on any given weekend is one of the brightest and liveliest of the streets of paris, there are pools of blood, dried blood on this street, and the memorials have already begun. in the middle of all this, parisians nevertheless have a sense this is a grim expectation that has been fulfilled. the attacks on "charlie hebdo" and elsewhere earlier this year set this city on edge waiting for the next blow to fall. it has in the most horrible fashion, and yet in the middle of all of it, they are pulling together. there was that movement last night online to open the doors, your own doors of your homes to people who needed to stay who couldn't get across town given the chaos here and even here on this street. a little bit earlier a man brought out a piano and started playing just to try to calm the nerves and the situation, bring a note of beauty and peace to
this scene of carnage, george. >> okay, terry, thanks very much. as you said, second major attack in the last ten month, want to bring in our chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz, and we heard the french president, martha, this morning blame isis, declare war. >> reporter: he did. he said this was an act of war and when faced with war, the country must take appropriate decisions. it was a reminder to me, george, of president george bush saying we would have a global war on terry shortly after 9/11, so you have to wonder what the approach of the french will be. will they approach this militarily or from a law enforcement angle? right now the french have been conducting air strikes in syria, but, frankly, not very many of them. will they do more? will the u.s. do more? the response is what we are truly watching today. >> the french president seemed to have reached a conclusion already that this was directed
and prepared overseas. >> reporter: yeah, he made that statement too, as well, planned from outside with outside complicity, which an investigation will establish. so, who planned this? are they in syria? are they in iraq? we have al baghdadi in iraq, in mosul that city he has held for well over a year and you have fallujah there, as well, so there are definitely heads of isis but whether they were involved in this, we just don't know. we have eight individuals, sort of a pack of lone wolves perhaps or there was some sort of command and control. someone from outside and the french clearly think that at this point, or i don't think the president would have said this, that it's somehow outside is somehow coordinating and telling those men to do what they did. >> what we do know, martha, is that isis has been gaining strength, strongholds in syria, strongholds in iraq. you were recently in afghanistan. isis gaining strength there, as well. >> huge escalation across the region and beyond in
afghanistan. the commander there told me isis has become a real problem there. they've seen them pop up around the country, whether they're just inspired, whether they want to be part of that hideous team of isis and think they're winners, that's a question they're asking themselves, as well, but iraq, as well. i mean, i was over there in january of 2014, and the ambassador there then was so concerned about isis, and six months later they moved in, and they took the city of mosul and they still hold that today. >> martha raddatz, thanks very much. let's go to the white house, jon karl is there and, jon karl, we saw the president come out shortly after the attacks and say we would do whatever it takes to help our oldest ally. >> reporter: absolutely, and although the president wouldn't say who was responsible, even today the united states, the white house not ready to say that they believe it was isis but clearly believe it was a terrorist attack, and you heard from the president, a strong statement of solidarity with the french people. >> this is an attack, not just
on parris, it's an attack not just on the people of france, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share. those who think that they can terrorize the people of france or the values that they stand for are wrong. >> and after that statement, jon, the president was able to speak with the french president hollande and now the president heading overseas to deal with this issue of isis. >> reporter: that's right. the first stop on that trip something go to be turkey where he is meeting at the g-20 with other european leaders. president hollande was supposed to be there. that meeting will go on without president hollande, but the topic, the number one topic was how to deal with the battle against isis, and in the statement from the president and in what we are hearing from administration officials since that statement, you hear resolve to help the french, not just with the investigation and the aftermath of this attack, but clearly the implication here is that the united states will help in going after whoever was responsible for this attack.
>> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. and so many folks here at home on edge, security is being ramped up, especially at sports arenas and stadiums. lots of college football games will be played across the country today, and nfl stadiums will be filled, and dan is in times square with that part of the story for us this morning. hi, dan. >> reporter: paula and george, good morning to both of you. cities across the country are boosting security in the wake of that horror over in paris including this city, america's largest metropolis, a place that is no stranger to terry, new york city. here in new york, the nypd deploying extra personnel and its counterterrorism unit. critical response teams ready in the city's most visible targets. >> not only will you see an increased uniformed presence with police officers with heavy weapons, there's also -- we work with our federal partners, the fbi and the joint terrorism task force. >> reporter: with one of the targets in paris being a packed stadium, sporting venues across america will be enhancing security today.
in los angeles, the famous rose bowl increasing its staffing and asking fans to leave their bags at home. the nba and nhl putting its teams on high alert, but the nfl saying it actually won't be changing protocols as sunday's games approach. the league spokesman saying, "security at our games is always at a heightened state of alert" adding "all nfl stadiums are already equipped with metal detectors." >> you can't view it as a nuisance. this is the world we live in now and if you have to take precautions, if you have to go through screening, that's just part of the process. >> reporter: with the attackers in paris hitting so many so-called soft targets like a restaurant and concert hall, the nypd and fbi will be working to keep popular areas around this city safe. you can expect heightened security at tourist attractions and on public transit. >> the tragic events in paris we established a counterterrorism overlay. what that is, it's heavy weapons emergency service officers.
they go to high-profile and sensitive locations throughout the city. >> reporter: it is important to note, very important to note that the department of homeland security is urging americans not to panic issuing a statement in which they say, "we know of no specific or credible threats of an attack on the u.s. homeland of the type that occurred in paris." paula, over to you. >> very important note, dan, thank you. and authorities in the u.s. are closely monitoring the situation in paris. abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas is in washington. and, pierre, here in the u.s., we've been just as active in tracking down potential terror attacks, haven't we? >> reporter: yes, paula, the fbi has dozens of investigations under way in all 50 states. many surrounding suspected isis sympathizers and they found a specific pool isis has reached through social media. in the last year alone more than 70 americans have been arrested for somehow trying to support isis, some accused of trying to join isis, others arrested for plotting attacks here at home. most are young. most are men, but there have
been some women, and even teenagers have been arrested too, paula. >> in terms of differentiating style, is there a difference between anti-terry attacks in france and europe compared to what we're used to here at home? >> reporter: the fbi employs many of the same tactic as and has been extremely aggressive in monitoring radical websites and social media. one tactic not often utilized in europe stings where fbi agents pose as terrorists and officials here have been extremely aggressive about stopping americans from going to syria in the first place. >> all right, pierre, thank you very much and pierre has been reporting for months they are sending out or trying to recruit with 90,000 messages on social media every single day. >> more from parris ahead but a quick check of the weather from ron. >> a lot of rivers outside seattle are flooding with a storm system impact there. there's the atmospheric river bringing more rain into the area and snow levels dropping as this drops into california and get into the central part of the country next week and talk more about that in 15 minutes. a significant rainfall so
exacerbating some flooding across western parts of washington potentially getting into oregon as well, 1, 2, 3 four inches of rainfall. at the higher elevations, we could see tonight over a foot of snow, maybe 20 to 30 inches in some of the higher elevations of the cascade, blustery >> that is the latest on weather. george and paula, back to you. >> rob, thanks very much. more from paris coming up as we look at images from paris and around the world last night.
this morning, people standing with france in this moment of mourning and horror. >> yeah, and this is isis' third claim for responsibility attack. we're going to hear more from eyewitnesses. the woman who hid under the table with her mother, those terrifying fights to survive. we are live from the scene in paris under attack when we return on "good morning america."

and welcome back to "good morning america." there you see some chilling new video out this morning from paris. people coming out of that theater, the bataclan theatre, where there had been a hostage situation. one of six sites attacked in the heart of the french capital. >> and this is that explosion at the soccer stadium. you can hear it. at least 127 people killed. we're hearing that hundreds more wounded in the second major terror attack inside paris this year. isis has claimed responsibility. and this morning we're learning that a syrian passport was found on one of the eight terrorists and, george, this is the third major attack that isis has claimed responsibility for in just the last couple of weeks. >> in just the last couple of weeks. and the french president
hollande declaring war on isis this morning, as paula said. i'm george stephanopoulos here with paula faris for a special edition of "good morning america." paris under attack and, paula, this is an entire country right now in a state of emergency. >> terrifying images all across and abc's matt gutman is on the scene of one of those attacks in paris. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, paula. we're learning americans were among the wounded. it seems those injuries are not life-threatening but the scope and the scale of those attacks is staggering. eight attackers, the french authority tells us, armed with suicide vests, ak-47s and grenades and instructed to expend all that ammunition before blowing themselves up striking six different locations hitting the city in its very solar plexes triking at the national stadium, a crowded cafe and bar district and, of course, that theater right behind me, it is popular with so many celebrities and even the deputy mayor was telling me that he had gone there so often and the scene out here last night, absolutely chaotic. after the police burst into that
theater and apparently gunned down the gunmen, they had to lower down the wounded and the dead from the second story. they set up a triage clinic right beneath that theater at a local bar and during that time people were running down their street their clothes, bleeding, and even today there are clothes strewn out here that are still bloody. now, the president of france has cleared this a state of war against a terrorist army and you can tell by the mood here on the street in parris, it's so different. i spoke to one man who said that this really is a state of war. it is either us or it's them and i much prefer it to be them. local governors have instituted a curfew for the first time in years. george. >> okay, matt, thanks very much. our chief investigative correspondent brian ross. we heard matt say the search for accomplice, the french police they got all eight attackers but
this could have been a huge n network. and that is some conclusion already reached by the french president hollande saying this was planned from the outside. it is isis and he's declaring war. >> exactly, squarely fingering isis as responsible and isis in the last few hours has issued statements of responsibility in arabic, in french, in russian and in english, their social media propaganda is going full steam? we would imagine they would do that even if they didn't direct this attack. >> but in this case they have specific, they say were part of their operation, they identified eight people, eight brothers and they talk about the targets they chose, the game, the soccer game because it was their enemies france and germany and the rock concert they called that a party of perversity, that's why it was chosen and say this is only the beginning of the storm. >> it's not even the beginning as paula just said. we've seen -- this is now the third attack in just the last couple of week. >> that's right, the alleged bombing of the russian jetliner in egypt. the bombing in beirut and now this in each case, isis has claimed responsibility. >> okay, brian,thanks very much.
we want to go now to an eyewitness on the scene near the bataclan theatre. we are nowed joined by imene ahm ahmed. imene, thank you for joining us. you were near the stadium. what exactly did you see? >> people were running everywhere, running away and they were like, okay, we need to move. we need to hide. i just take the hand of my mom and just hide under the table, in the kitchen behind the wall. just everywhere just hiding. >> did you see the shooters? >> everyone was just afraid and crying. no, i haven't seen them. i was just afraid and running away with everyone. we just heard the shooting, but we were close enough to hear the shooting and the bombing. >> and how long did the shooting and the bombing go on? what exactly did you hear? >> we heard the bombing. for the first time, it was like 30 seconds, the second time it was probably ten minutes. and we were just waiting and hearing the shooting and
everyone were just screaming everywhere and crying and people were just like, okay, we're going to die, we're going to die. it was like, okay, don't worry, we are not going to die today. the attack is in the bataclan. we are not there. don't worry, everything is going to be okay and we were just waiting and the police came. they were knocking on the windows and saying, just stay on the floor, stay on the floor, don't move. don't move, then three bombs explode and this is the terrorist that killed himself like that and the walls were just shaking everywhere. we were like, okay, we're going to die with these walls seriously, and we were just waiting till the end. >> so, this bar was right next door to the bataclan concert hall where the suicide bombers were holding the hostages, so how long were you under that table as you waited for the police to go in? >> we were in the bar -- the police came very, very quick. it was very fast, so i stayed in
the bar from 9:40 p.m. till 5:30 a.m., so like nine hours in the bar. >> my goodness. that must have been the most terrifying moments of your life, imene. >> yeah, that was very scary, very long. we were just trying to help the people, giving them our phones if they needed to call their family, whatever they want, we give it to them. i mean, we helped the people, just help them and whatever happened, it's okay. don't worry, we are going to be fine and they were afraid. they were injured. they were all bleeding everywhere. that was really awful, seriously. that was scary. >> we want to bring in abc news consultant matthew olsen, former head of the national counterterrorism center and first and foremost, is this something new isis is doing? we keep hearing that this is the third attack that they've claimed responsibility for in just the last couple of weeks. it seems they're going global. >> this does appear, paula, to be a significant escalation of isis' capability and reach. we haven't seen them really carry out an attack of this degree of coordination and
apparent sophistication as far from their home base in syria and iraq as they have here now in paris, if, in fact, they were responsible for this, so this is an escalation of their capability for sure. >> we're trying to formulate a picture, as well, of who these shooters were. we're hearing that there was a syrian passport found near one of them, but what does it say that witnesses are claiming that these shooters were speaking french? >> well, there is a mix here, right, so you have the possibility that they were directed from operatives inside syria or iraq, but it appears quite likely that individuals, radicalized french individuals in france, in paris were obviously carrying out the attacks themselves, and this is really the scenario that we've been so concerned about for a number of years because of the number of foreign fighters, thousands from western europe going to syria, many of them fighting with isis and returning to their home countries in a position to carry out attacks just like this. >> a nightmare scenario,
matthew? >> absolutely, and it's the one that gives u.s. counterterrorism officials the most concern, as well, the possibility that individuals could actually come back to this country and carry out a similar type of attack here. >> all right. matthew olsen, thank you for join being us this morning. >> which is why u.s. officials have tried so hard to block people from going to syria in the first place. much more from paris coming up. right now to rob with the weather. >> hey, george, back to that potent system impacting the pacific northwest dropping south in california. snow levels will be lowering. as it crosses the rocky mountains, it will span snow across the high plain and tap moisture from the gulf of mexico and looks to be severe for monday, tuesday, maybe even into wednesday and certainly some heavy rain. in advance of that, we're looking for a dramatic warm-up

there you see the eiffel tower this morning. it has been closed indefinitely. so much concern in paris across france right now, a state of emergency, 1500 soldiers have been put on the streets to protect additional sites and moments ago i spoke with the deputy mayor of paris, patrick klugman. and we are joined now by the deputy mayor of paris, patrick klugman, mayor klugman, our hearts are with you this morning. what can you tell us about the scene in paris right now? >> thank you. well, the situation is really very weird, i would say, very strange, very unusual. we are facing unprecedented events in paris. we have the state of emergency declared, which is the first time since the algeria war in the early '60s.
all schools are closed. all games, flea markets, concerts, all are closed. so it's like a mourning morning i would say. the city is a bit stopped, and we are under shock. >> the police have said that eight attackers have been killed. are you confident all the attackers are killed, and what do we know about possible accomplices? >> we are not totally focused at the moment on the inquiry on the accomplices, on the person responsible. as you know, of course, isis claimed for the terror attacks, but we don't know more about who are the actors, who are the criminals, because we are really counting and naming the dead persons and the wounded persons in paris. i would like to add also that this morning we had emergency
meeting in paris with all the persons responsible, the deputy mayors, the district mayors, et cetera, and mike bloomberg, former mayor of new york, was here with us this morning, and it was a huge sign of support for us to see physically that america is standing with us, and, of course, we know it, and we heard president obama yesterday, but it's great sign of solidarity, and it's so important at the present moment. >> mr. mayor, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> the president so strong yesterday talking about standing with our oldest ally. >> but also, you know, it's so frightening because how are you supposed to fight this enemy, at least for the shooters that were that concert hall they're all wearing suicide vests. they're all so willing to die for the cause. >> they were defenseless, right in the middle of a presidential campaign and we'll talk to jon karl about this. this is already becoming fodder in the presidential campaign.

contained isis. this is going to be a phrase, if this turns out that, in fact, that isis was responsible for these attacks, as the president of france has said, if that turns out to be the case, those will be words the president will likely regret having said. it's not the first time that he has said something about isis that has come back to haunt him, of course, it wasn't all that long ago that he called isis the jv team. that is something clearly the president wish he had not said. but it's not the only line of attack we're seeing from the republicans. they're also pointing to the president's plan to allow an additional 10,000 syrian refugees to come into the united states. a number of the republican presidential candidates are saying that should be stopped. here's what ted cruz tweeted not long ago. he said, "we need to immediately declare a halt to any plans to bring refugees that may have been infiltrated by isis." >> and, jon, on the democratic side, a debate is scheduled for tonight. >> reporter: the debate will go
forward. the debate in iowa with the democratic candidates, and you can be sure that this will be a top topic of discussion at that debate. >> no question about it, jon karl, thank you very much. we'll be right back. turning cooler and the air is nice and crisp, i know that fall has finally arrived. and with it, all the flavors of the season. fall is all about bringing people together around delicious food. and each recipe brings as much enjoyment as the company. low prices on everything you need to make every meal more memorable. walmart. on top of your health?ay ahh... ahh... cigna customers have plan choices and tools to take control. so they're more engaged, with fewer high health risks and lower medical costs. take control of your health at cigna dot com slash take control. i try hard to get a great shape. this i can do easily. benefiber® healthy shape helps curb cravings. it's a clear, taste-free, daily supplement that's clinically shown to help
