At least three foreigners, including two Belgians and a Portuguese man, were killed in the wave of attacks in Paris, officials from both countries said Saturday.

"At least two Belgians were killed," Foreign Minister Didier Reynders said according to his spokesman who added that Brussels had received the information from the French authorities.

There were no other details following the announcement on RTBF television.

In Lisbon, the secretary of state for citizens abroad, Jose Cesario, told AFP that "a 63-year-old Portuguese man who lived in Paris and worked in the transport" sector died.

A source cited by Portugal's official news agency Lusa said the man apparently died near the Stade de France football stadium where three explosions took place.

The French authorities said one person died there along with three suicide bombers.

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel earlier urged his fellow citizens to avoid unnecessary travel to Paris following Friday night's attacks that left at least 128 people dead.
