He told police he was asked by one of the gunmen if he believed in God, and he said he did. He was asked if he was French, and he said he was Chilean.
He was let go, he says.
22:47 GMT - The Republican presidential frontrunner weighs in on Paris.
"When you look at Paris, toughest gun laws in the world, nobody had guns but the bad guys," he said on the 2016 campaign trail in Texas, after a moment of silence for the dead.
"And I will tell you what -- you can say what you want, if they had guns, if our people had guns, if they were allowed to carry, it would have been a much, much different situation."
22:59 GMT - Belgian police arrest several suspects in Brussels during raids connected to the Paris attacks.
"An old model Golf was stopped as it was driving. The police made the man get out and they shoved him in the back, made him kneel and then put a blindfold on him," a resident of the poor Brussels district of Molenbeek tells AFP on condition of anonymity.
"The man was between 30 and 40. He was dressed normally in jeans and a hoodie. He wasn't bearded, he looked normal," the witness adds.

Earlier, some controversy arose when International Motoring Federation (FIA) president Frenchman Jean Todt spoke with French television station Canal+ and seemed dismissive toward the terror attacks.
He told the station: "Do you realise the number of people killed in road accidents is by far bigger than the number of people who died in Paris?"
FIA issued a statement that said: "A French flag decorated with a black ribbon will be carried on the truck used during the drivers' parade."
23:41 GMT - Romain Grosjean, the only French driver in Formula One, wore a black armband incorporating his nation's flag during the qualifying session for the Brazilian Grand Prix.

"It's going to be hard, but let's do a race, think about what happened and hope that peace comes back quickly," the Lotus driver says.

Sydney Opera House red, white and blue for France
00:31 GMT - The discovery of a Syrian passport near the body of one attacker has raised suspicions some of the attackers might have entered Europe as part of an influx of people fleeing Syria's civil war.
"We confirm that the (Syrian) passport holder came through the Greek island of Leros on October 3 where he was registered under EU rules," says the Greek minister for citizen protection, Nikos Toskas.
Police do not rule out that the Syrian passport may have changed hands before the assault.
00:50 GMT - In the US capital, crowds of mostly French people gather for a somber vigil organised by the French Embassy in a park adjacent to the White House named after the Marquis de Lafayette.
"France is not a race, France is not a religion, France is not an ethnic group, France is a will to live together," French Ambassador Gerard Araud tells the crowd of hundreds.
Student Matei Jovanovic tells AFP, "France is in mourning, I did not sleep at night. Being so far from Paris, it is a pleasure to see so many people gathered to say that France is still standing."

France mourns as details emerge on deadly Paris attacks
01:44 GMT - Panama raised its terror alert level Saturday in reaction to the deadly attacks in Paris, ramping up security at its strategic canal and other sensitive locations, the president said.
"Security has been increased at airports, the canal and some diplomatic legations," President Juan Carlos Varela said a day after the attacks in the French capital.
02:09 GMT - Three US presidential candidates at the Democratic debate in Des Moines, Iowa, respond to the deadly terrorist attacks in the French capital.
Bernie Sanders: "Together, leading the world, this country will rid our planet of this barbaric organisation called ISIS."
Hillary Clinton: "Our prayers are with the people of France tonight, but that is not enough. We need to have a resolve that will bring the world together to root out the kind of radical jihadist ideology that motivates organisations like ISIS -- a barbaric, ruthless, violent jihadist terrorist group."
Martin O'Malley: "My heart goes out to the people of France in this moment of loss... and as our hearts go out to them and as our prayers go out to them, we must remember this: that this is the new face of conflict and warfare, not in the 20th century but the new face of conflict and warfare in the 21st century. And there is no nation on the planet better able to adapt to this change than our nation."
03:00 GMT - The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) has planned a series of conferences around the country where community leaders, activists and others will speak out against jihadist ideology, but also government security measures they say alienate Muslims.
"We do know that for any policy to succeed it needs to involve Muslim communities as part of the solution and not only as part of the problem," said MCB secretary general Shuja Shafi at the first of a series of conferences in London this week.
The initiative comes as concerns mount over the number of Britons heeding calls by the Islamic State (IS) group and other extremists to launch attacks domestically or fight abroad.
IS has claimed responsibility for a string of outrages, including the attacks in Paris Friday that left 129 dead and more than 350 wounded.
03:28 GMT - AFP reporter Stephane Jourdain says that the area around the Elysee Palace in Paris is completely closed off, with taxis forced to take detours. Armed guards patrol the perimeter in the early hours of the morning.
