And this, from this Facebook user, a member of the public at the Bataclan venue:

Je suis encore au Bataclan. 1e étage. Blessée grave ! Qu ils donnent au plus vite l assaut. Il y a des survivants à l intérieur. Ils abattent tout le monde. Un par un. 1e étage vite !!!!
I'm still at the bataclan. 1th floor. Hurt Bad! They give the faster l assault. There are survivors inside. They are cutting down all the world. One by one. 1th floor soon!!!!

And later, this:

Vivant. Juste des coupures... Un carnage... Des cadavres partout.
Alive. Just cuts... Carnage... Dead bodies everywhere.


An eyewitness of the Bataclan theatre shooting has just told France Info the attackers shouted "Allah Akhbar" as they opened fire. An earlier interviewee had said the same.
