PARIS (Reuters) – All sports competitions in the Paris region have been suspended in the wake of Friday’s deadly attacks in the French capital in which at least 120 people were killed and over 200 wounded, French TV ITele reported on Saturday.
No matches in the elite Ligue 1 soccer division were scheduled this weekend.
A friendly international against England scheduled for Tuesday in London might also be cancelled.
“We will liaise with the French Federation in due course and update accordingly” to see whether the game would be played, the English football association (FA) said on its Twitter feed.
France were playing Germany at the Stade de France when the Saint-Denis attack took place outside the stadium.
