Two Dutch people present at the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday night came forward to tell about their experience. Twan, who was working in the Stade de France stadium, spoke of an eerie silence falling over the stadium. Ferry Zandvliet, who was attending the Eagles of Death Metal concert, told how he crawled through corpses to get out.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte called a series of attacks in Paris "awful" in two posts on social media Friday night. Multiple news agencies reported that anywhere up to 40 people were killed in three different shootings and two different explosions in the 10th and 11th districts of the French capital.
