enforces very tough border controls. >> we have crews covering the latest from france and the impact of those attacks here at home. a short time ago france's president addressed the nation saying the attacks were, quote, an act of war. the attacks on a soccer stadium, concert hall and cafe were committed by a terrorist army against france, against the values that we defend everywhere in the world against what we are, a free country that means something to the whole planet. there were at least eight attackers, seven of them suicide bombers. at a theater more than 100 people were killed while an american band was on stage. suicide bombers also struck outside a stadium where a match between france and germany was being played. one fan inside described the confusion. >> you can hear the reaction
after. they cheered. we thought it was fireworks or some kind of cannon or something deliberate done during the game. i mean, it wasn't until almost 60 or 70 minutes when i started getting calls and texts and people asking if i was okay. >> just minutes ago isis claimed responsibility for the attacks. and in an unprecedented move disneyland paris closed today as a precautionary measure. as we've been talking about this morning, the french president is blaming the islamic state group isis for the attacks. >> reporter: overnight the terror group isis out of syria claiming responsibility for the attack online. officials still working to verify those claims. but as the french president announced this morning all suspicion pointed at the islamic
state group and the french president vowing retaliation. there are 1500 soldiers joining police in locking down and securing paris as they look into not only who exactly the eight terrorists were. seven of them wore suicide vests and set off explosives. they are now looking to see who else inside france might have been assisting this terror cell and also how they got their training, how they got their weapons and what the overseas connections might be. again, isis being blamed for this terror attack which has left 127 dead, about more than 100 injured. 100 of those critically wounded.
the coming days. u.s. officials say there are no threats here inside the u.s. france has already been helping in carrying out air strikes against syria. it's unclear what the next steps are going to be from french and coalition authorities in retaliating against the group should the evidence further point to isis and isis leaders for carrying out this attack. again, the french president blaming isis and isis itself putting out a statement this morning claiming responsibility. >> this is exactly what european officials had feared and tried to prevent. you've been in touch with authorities in this country. how on earth do you prepare and guard against something like that? >> the key is intelligence.
cia, the nypd works very hard at day in, day out. the problem in france, what it appears to be is that you have so many fighters from inside france who went to syria. they fought alongside isis, hundreds of them. and many of them have since returned to france. and the intelligence authorities there have been stretched, taxed trying to follow all the potential extremist who may want to do harm inside that country. it's unclear whether the attackers were actual fighters inside syria. again, they have not yet identified who these eight attackers are. but clearly they're drawing a direct link to isis.
have to get in front of this and find out who else might be to blame. here in the u.s. not as much of a problem, the population is not -- the extremist population is not nearly as great. but the fbi has told us there are investigations going on inside the u.s. in all 50 states regarding potential isis followers, lone wolves here inside the u.s. but again no specific threat in the u.s. the hunt continues for other possible suspects in france. the tragedy in paris comes as that city continues to heal from attacks earlier this year when gunmen terrorized the city for three days be ack in january beginning with the magazine charlie hebdo. two days after that, a gunman opened fire inside a kosher
deli, kiledling four more people. here at home in the darkness last night, a tribute in light. the spire of one world trade glowed blue white and red, the colors of the french flag. new york showing solidarity with the people of france. >> reporter: good morning to both of you. this morning the french flag outside of the embassy has been lowered and there is a uniformed nypd police officer patrolling the entrance to the embassy. mourners started paying their respects to the victims of the paris attacks by lighting candles and dropping off bouquets of flowers. that memorial has steadily grown as new yorkers reflect on their own grief.
want to pay homage to the french people, all the lives lost senselessly. innocent people are murdered. >> reporter: the nypd and other intelligence officials don't know of any known threats to new york right now, but they have thstepped up their patrols around e embassy and other parts of the city. in addition to the prayer vigil that's expected here around 7:00 here at the french embassy, there will also be the gathering in union square around 2:00 p.m. back to you. >> passengers at local airports last night were scrambling to catch flights to paris to be with loved ones. >> reporter: at jfk french citizens are desperate to get home and desperate for word eir families are safe. i spoke with bruno, a native of paris about to board a flight back home. >> reporter: what are your thoughts?
>> it's terrible. we are very under shock. it's really shocking. >> reporter: are your family and friend okay? >> i have not had any family my family yet on the phone, but i know they should be allnright. >> reporter: a staten island woman is in paris right now. she said hisenr her flight is delay delayed. >> i'm terrified. >> reporter: she's asked to keep her kids from seeing the horror unfolding on television. ja janine is hoping to get back home sometime today. at jfk, michael george, "today in new york." >> we will keep you updated
