MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University says it is reaching out to its partners in France to ensure the safety of the five WVU students studying there.

WVU says all five students are in locations outside of Paris, where at least 127 were killed in a series of explosions and attacks at sites around the city late Friday.

Besides the students based in France, the university has sent messages to all of its students on the European continent, advising them to avoid travel to France. Students typically take advantage of their education abroad to explore the continent.

In Morgantown, the Office of International Programs has also reached out to French students on campus, offering support and assistance if needed.

No WVU faculty or staff registered in the WVU system are currently in France.
