French President Francois Hollande promised early Saturday morning to lead a "pitiless" war against the terrorists responsible for the deadly attacks on Paris.
"We are going to lead a war, it will be pitiless," he said at the scene of the Bataclan convert venue, according to NBC News reporter Katy Tur.

"Because when terrorists are capable of committing such atrocities they must be certain that they are facing a determined France, a united France, a France that is together and does not let itself be moved, even if today we express infinite sorrow," he added, according to reports.
More than 100 were killed when gunmen stormed the concert venue, opened fire indiscriminately on the crowd and held hostages. When police stormed inside, they were faced with a horrific scene. The attack on the concert venue came as a series of terror attacks gripped the French capital.
