MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. Terrorists would not manage to trample on the rule of law and the right for life, envoy of the Russian Foreign Ministry on human rights, democracy and rule of law Konstantin Dolgov said on Saturday.
"I join the sincere condolences and the world of support to the people of France," he tweetted. "Terrorists are trying to trample on the right for life, the rule of law and human dignity. No way!"
A series of terrorist acts took place at six various venues in Paris Friday evening with the use of automatic weapons and explosive devices. Hostages were taken in the Bataclan concert hall where 1,500 people gathered for a rock concert. The president declared the state of emergency in the country and closed the state borders.
Five terrorists, according to preliminary data, took part in the terrorist acts in Paris, the French capital’s prosecutor Francois Molins said Saturday.
Agence France Presse reported citing sources close to investigation that eight participants in the terrorist attacks were killed. Four attackers died in the Bataclan hall: three activated suicide belts, and one was killed by law enforcers. Three suicide bombers activated their belts near the Stade de France stadium. Another terrorist blew himself up near Bataclan, sources said.
Later reports said the death toll reached 128; another 250 are injured and 99 of them are in poor conditions.
The Elysee Palace said after an extraordinary ministerial conference led by President Francois Hollande that the French authorities have sent their 1,500-strong unit of servicemen to ensure security in Paris after the large-scale terrorist attack occurred in the French capital on Friday evening.
