In 2015, the city of Paris was the target of a number of terrorist attacks, including a series of co-ordinated attacks on November 13th which targetted concertgoers at the Bataclan Theatre, people dining in cafes and restaurants, and football fans at the Stade de France. The attacks were the most deadly in France since World War II, with over 130 fatalities.
This lecture will provide an insight into the response of the emergency services both during and after the attacks.
