French Soccer Fans Unite, Sing National Anthem Following Paris Attacks (Video)

Paris Attacks - Fans Sing Anthem

Paris was turned into a war zone Friday night as terrorist raided several locations around the city with guns and explosives, leaving over 150 dead and many more injured.  While all of this was going on, thousands of soccer fans in attendance for an international friendly between France and Germany at the Stade de France took refuge on the pitch as authorities worked to take down the perpetrators and restore peace in the streets.

Once the terrorists were taken down, the fans were allowed to safely leave the stadium, and they did so united, singing the French National Anthem as they exited through a tunnel:

Dans un tunnel de sortie du Stade de France, sortie dans le calme…. Et la Marseillaise. #fier
