The busy hum of Parisian nightlife was tragically shattered on Friday evening as gunshots and explosions pierced the cool evening. In a number of coordinated, simultaneous attacks on the French capital — the worst since World War II — 129 people were killed. ISIS quickly claimed the attacks who, over the last 16 days have carried out two other deadly international attacks, which some warn could be the start of a new deadly international phase for the militant group.
Hussein says the powerful second explosion – meters further along the street than the first – had torn through the crowd gathering after the first blast. “There were tons of people here, it was terrifying,” he recalls. The two blasts in Beirut killed at least 46 people and left more than 239 wounded.
