Paper No. 6036                                  Dated 19-Nov-2015

Paris, on November 13 evening, was nothing unusual.  A concert with an American band from California performing.  A friendly football match in the stadium between France and Germany.  And people in bars and cafeterias enjoying themselves.  Gay and Carefree Paris was impervious to a threat from Islamic State (IS) or Daesh, when all hell broke loose.

Paper No. 6024                                   Dated 19-Oct-2015
