Paris attacks: Arsenal legend Thierry Henry sends message to his homeland
Thierry Henry expresses his disgust at the deadly Paris terror attacks on Friday night
Thierry Henry says he is “appalled” by Friday’s terror attacks in Paris which have claimed the lives of at least 120 people.
France has declared a national state of emergency and tightened its borders after a deadly night of gun and bomb attacks in the capital.
At least 80 people were reported killed after gunmen burst into the Bataclan concert hall and took hostages before security forces stormed the centre.
People were also shot dead at restaurants and bars at five other sites in Paris, with eight attackers are reported killed after the deadliest attacks in Europe since the 2004 Madrid bombings.
There were also explosions near the Stade De France as France played Germany in football friendly.
Messages of support have been flooding in on social media following the reports of the horrific incidents in Paris.
And Arsenal legend Henry tweeted a message of support to his homeland on Friday night, posting:
I'm appalled by the shocking scenes in Paris at the moment. My thoughts are with all the victims and innocent people suffering right now.
