    The ever-increasing death toll is horrific enough, simply as a stark figure.
    I can't begin to imagine the extent of all the personal tragedies just starting to unfold, as families are aware that they have lost loved ones.
    It is too horrible to contemplate.

    I cannot think of anything to say apart from to echo We stand with France.

    Sure is sad.

    Staggered people didn't see this coming. Plenty more to follow unfortunately.

    Not sure what you mean - are you hinting that by going to the football/a gig/out for dinner Parisians somehow are culpable in this? Should we all live locked up in our homes so as not to provide targets for religious nutters?

    Only just caught the headlines, but this will change things, I feel, so that we do see these things coming.

    Yes, I think/fear you're right @Eureka! :(. A game-changer.

    Unfortunately, I think it will change everything like the destruction of the Twin Towers did. The incident itself is horrific but I also dread the consequences.

    The incident is horrific - can't believe how the death toll has risen overnight, but the aftermath will last much longer.

    Anyone considered that some of these migrants might be ISI terrorists? Border security must be paramount.
    The situation in Paris is unimaginable horror. Having just had some very bad news myself about my daughter....she was in Paris recently. It could be worse. There but for the grace of God. My heart goes out to the family and friends of the dead and injured, and to France as a whole.
    What kind of animals are we to deliberately slaughter our own kind?
    I despair........................

    Sad and appalling. Walked those streets in the summer.

    We were there. Just two weeks ago. In a hotel on the Rue de Charonne, a hundred yards or so from La Belle Equipe.

    We were welcomed by locals into various bars and restaurants as non French-speaking Brits, often twice their age, with laughter, fun and joy.

    Heart-breaking news.
