It appears the police operation to free the hostages held in the Bataclan concert hall in Paris has been successful, but not before approximately 100 patrons were killed.

Journalist Peter Allen said police are saying two of the hostage takers have been killed.

"They've moved in, clearly to stop lives being lost. They had to move in very, very quickly...Sadly, it's a scene of carnage and many civilian have died."

The Daily Telegraph's Henry Samuel said the gunman got inside the concert hall, and opened fire on the crowd.

"Clearly if the security forces have launched an assault this quickly, they fear a blood bath is going on...There's no point in hanging around."

There are reports more than 100 people have been killed in multiple attacks in Paris, including one near the Stade de France sports stadium and another at the concert venue.
