I wrote a piece for the website crimemagazine dot com about the Islamist terrorists attacks in Paris.

I start my piece as follows:

Parisians woke on the morning of Wednesday, January 7, 2015, to an icy fog descending over the rooftops.

 Two days previously, on Monday, the children had returned to school after the Christmas vacation, their parents having returned to work too. All already having had to cope with crowded buses and underground rail cars, and bumper to bumper road traffic for 48 hours, the fact that the weather was not looking so good, did not cheer anyone.

 Worse was to come.

 At around 11:45 am news began to circulate through the City of Light that a terrorist attack had just a few minutes earlier taken place at the offices of the satirical weekly, Charlie Hebdo.  Several people had been shot: some might be dead.

 The perpetrators — it was not certain how many there were — were hooded and dressed in black, and had shouted Allahu Akbar (Arabic for “God is Great”) as they ran to a parked car and sped from the killing scene.

 At the end of the day the death toll would stand at 12.
