Show of solidarity after Paris attacks

There has been a show of solidarity in Paris, with singing, flowers, and candles replacing the gunfire and explosions. That's following the deadliest attack in France in the capital since World War II.

The world is trying to come to terms with the attacks that killed 129 people and injured hundreds more.  The attacks targeted a concert hall, as well as restaurants and a football stadium.  Police now have the grim task of removing dozen of bodies from the attack sites, including the Bataclan Hall, the scene of the deadliest assaults.  Terrorists executed at least 100 people who were inside for a concert watching a band, and only a handful of people were able to escape.  New footage that was released shows people standing on window ledges, hanging off of ledges, dangling from windows in the hopes the rampage would stop.

One American is among the victims who were killed in Paris. 23-year-old California State University Long Beach student was killed in one of the restaurant attacks on Friday evening. Nohemi Gonzalez was in Paris for a semester abroad program.  She was eating with another student when she was shot and killed.  Gonzalez would have been returning home next month.  The university will plan a vigil tonight in honor of all of the attack victims.   French authorities believe that eight terrorists carried out the coordinated attacks around the city.

Agents in belgium have made several arrests.  The arrests happened at the Belgian border when a car with Belgium license plates tried to cross over the border.

Arizona Senator John McCain is also speaking out about the attacks. He remains critical of President Obama and his strategy for defeating ISIS.
