Paris attacks

Link: Paris attack—as it happened

On the evening of November 13, 2015, a series of terrorist attacks in Paris killed more than 120 people and injured almost 200, with 80 serious injuries. A Paris city hall official said four gunmen systematically slaughtered at least 87 young people attending a rock concert at the Bataclan music hall. Anti-terrorist commandos eventually launched an assault on the building. The gunmen detonated explosive belts and dozens of shocked survivors were rescuedSome 40 more people were killed in five other attacks in the Paris region, including an apparent double suicide bombing outside the national stadium, where Hollande and the German foreign minister were watching a friendly soccer international.

It is clear that this incident has left an impact on many people around the world, and I feel that it should deserve the front cover of a major magazine because it was the most tragic and saddening news that had happened all year. Many people lost their loved ones in the bombing and it has also caused many people to reconsider their choice of holiday locations, causing many tourism businesses to lose out. Not only that, it had shocked the world into realization of the seriousness of the threat of terrorists. Many countries had also banded together to help out France in tracking down the terrorists which was quite admirable.
