Shots have been fired at a restaurant in Paris and there was an explosion near France’s national stadium, according to reports.

The Associated Press said fatalities had been reported following a “shootout” at a restaurant, believed to be near the Place de la Republique, and that ambulances were at the scene.

In an apparently separate incident explosions were heard from within the Stade de France, about five or six miles from the city centre, where France were playing Germany in an international football friendly.

The AP reported an explosion at a bar near the stadium, and that it was “unclear” if anybody had been hurt.

Pictures posted online showed cracked windows of what appears to be a restaurant.

Opposite, the road opens up into a junction, where around 30 or 40 people were standing outside their cars and on the road. Police cars were seen behind them, while the road appeared to be closed.

Police officials confirmed the two incidents to the Associated Press.
