France awoke in shock on Saturday, still in disbelief after a night of gun and bomb attacks that left over 120 people dead.
The suspected terror attack, one of the worst on civilians in European history and the worst since the bombings at Madrid's Atocha station which killed 191, has shaken the nation to the core.
"Carnage in Paris," read the front page of France's left-leaning Liberation newspaper on Saturday, while its online edition headlined "The world awakes in shock after the attacks in Paris."
Meanwhile, Le Monde newspaper spoke of France's "nightmare night" and right-leaning Le Figaro's online edition showed grainy footage of casualties and paper edition described it as "war" in Paris.
La Voix du Nord, a regional newspaper in northern France, simply headlined "The horror in Paris", while Paris' Le Parisien said: "This time it's war".
