SADNESS, FEAR, ANGER. That best sums up the emotions of three Barbadians and their friends living in Paris, France, where a multipronged terrorist attack claimed 127 lives, while more than 300 are believed to have been wounded, 99 seriously.

Student Jenna DeFreitas related how she was with a friend at a juice bar in Saint Michael, about five minutes away from Le Bataclan theatre, when the shootings started and 87 people died.

“There were sirens and ambulances and police cars everywhere. People were getting scared, so those who could, went home . . . However, there were many stuck at Chatelet since the metro (train) stopped and there were no more taxis and Uber. I know of some people who had to walk and made it home around 8 a.m.,” said DeFreitas, who is doing hospitality studies.
