Terrorists fired at crowd blindly: Paris attacks witness

Paris, Nov 14 (IANS) A journalist at the Bataclan theatre, one of the multiple sites in Paris which was attacked on Friday night, said the terrorists blindly fired at the crowd for 10-15 minutes, BBC reported.

“Several armed men came into the concert. Two or three men, not wearing masks, came in with what looked like Kalashnikovs and fired blindly on the crowd,” BBC quoted Julien Pierce, a Europe 1 journalist, as saying.

“It lasted between 10 and 15 minutes. It was extremely violent and there was panic. The attackers had enough time to reload at least three times. They were very young.”

Terrorists killed over 150 people in a string of shootings and explosions in Paris.

Recounting the horror, Ben Grant, who was with his wife at a bar when one of the shootings occurred, said they heard gunshots and people dropped to the ground.

“There are lots of dead people. It was pretty horrific to be honest… I was at the back of the bar. I couldn’t see anything.

“We put a table over our heads to protect us.

“We were held up in the bar because there was a pile of bodies in front of us,” BBC quoted Grant as saying.
