ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. presidential candidates took to social media on Friday (November 13) to express their condolences after France was rocked by multiple, near simultaneous attacks on entertainment sites around Paris on Friday evening. French media said scores were killed in the attacks, one of which occurred at a soccer match attended by French President Francois Hollande. "My prayers are with the victims and hostages in the horrible Paris attacks. May god be with you all," Republican candidate Donald Trump wrote. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted, "The reports from Paris are harrowing. Praying for the city and families of the victims." The apparently coordinated gun and bomb attacks came as the country, a founding member of the U.S.-led coalition waging air strikes against Islamic State fighters in Syria and Iraq, was on high alert for terrorist attacks ahead of a global climate conference that opens later this month.
