French authorities have published a step-by-step illustrated instruction guide on how to react to an attack like that which took place on 13 November.

The instructions card is titled: "How to react in the event of a terrorist attack: Before authorities arrive, these behaviours can save you."

The sheet runs through a number of different steps including how to escape, help others, hide and obey police.

Detailed instructions are included with each point, for example when hiding the sheet suggests people should "hide behind a resistant obstacle (wall, pillar)" and to stay silent and "always switch phone ringtone and vibration off".

A series of coordinated attacks took place across Paris last month killing 130 people and left hundreds of others wounded.
