PARIS (AFP) - On top of at least 120 people killed in the wave of attacks across Paris on Friday (Nov 13), more than 200 were injured, including 80 seriously, a source close to the investigation said.

The attacks took place at a concert hall and several bars and restaurants in eastern Paris, as well as the Stade de France national stadium north of the centre.

Two Swedish citizens may be among the victims of the attacks that killed more than 120 people in Paris, the Foreign Ministry said Saturday.

"We have information that one person of Swedish nationality was wounded by gunfire and another was killed," Mr Johan Tegel, a ministry spokesman, told public television.

"Our ambassador in Paris is trying to confirm this information with French authorities."

More than 120 people were killed in a series of coordinated bombings and shootings across Paris on Friday, including around 100 shot dead in a bloodbath at a rock concert.
