Thousands Sing The French National Anthem As Paris Soccer Stadium Is Evacuated
They're at the point now where they're evacuating the Stade de France, the Paris soccer stadium where France was playing Germany in an international friendly tonight as the attacks in Paris took place. Early reports are at least 11 people died outside one of the gates of the stadium in an apparent suicide bombing, part of a series of at least three attacks in the city.
Initially police kept fans and players inside of the stadium until they were sure the danger had passed, which it appears that it has -- at least in that portion of the city. And as the fans filed out, they spontaneously began singing the La Marseillaise, the French National Anthem.
The people leaving the Stade de France are singing the French National Anthem! God I got chills down my spine
