"People began to drop and throw themselves to the ground. I thought that the guy next to me was dead."

The witness said he managed to exit from the venue.

"We hid in a cafe, barricaded on the first floor. When we told people what had happened they believed us immediately. It's war here, there were shots fired just a very short time ago.

"All we can hear are sirens, we are waiting to be evacuated...," the witness was quoted by BBC.
