But when the fans eventually left the stadium they showed their unity to their fellow Parisians and defiance at the attackers, as hundreds of fans sang the French national anthem "La Marseillaise".

According to The French Football Federation, three people have been killed by the explosion that occurred outside the stadium.

An Associated Press reporter in the stadium heard two explosions loud enough to penetrate the sounds of cheering fans.

Sirens were immediately heard, and a helicopter was circling overhead.
