One American was among the 129 people killed in the Paris terror attacks, officials said Saturday.
Paris prosecutor Francois Molinssaid said 89 people were killed in the attack on Bataclan concert hall alone and 352 others were wounded in the attacks — 99 in critical condition.

A state of emergency was declared and France deployed 1,500 troops after a near-simultaneous series of explosions and shootings brought the city to a horrified standstill overnight.
French police were hunting possible accomplices of eight assailants, who attacked concert-goers, cafe diners and soccer fans in at least six locations in the French capital. Authorities said that seven attackers blew themselves up, while the eighth was killed by police.
The jihadist group officially claimed responsibility for the attacks in a statement released online Saturday in Arabic and French.
