2015: A set of coordinated terror attacks in Paris, including multiple shootings and explosions, kills 130 people and injures 368 others. The death toll included 89 at the Bataclan theatre, where attackers carried out a mass shooting and took hostages during an Eagles of Death Metal concert. Seven of the attackers died in the attacks, with ISIS later claiming responsibility for the attacks. The suspected lead operative of the attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, was killed five days later in a police raid in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis, along with two others.
