New footage has now emerged of the horrific Paris terrorist attack last week. We have all seen the news reports and the video of the aftermath of the attack, but these new CCTV images add another dimension of brutality to the crime.
Besides the horror of the victims, the video obtained by the U.K. Daily Mail showed the calm with which a terrorist fired into a cafe during his rampage around Paris.
The video also had a hopeful side, because it showed the incredible luck one woman had. The terrorist pointed his gun at her but, by some miracle, the gun jammed and she survived.
Police have stated that she was probably the luckiest person to survive Friday’s massacre that horrified even veteran journalists.
The video, showing the better side of humanity, also showed a young woman, a 20-year-old waitress, wrapping her arms around a wounded elderly woman as bullets flew around them.
By some stroke of luck, none of the people inside the cafe were killed during this attack. Unfortunately, those outside the restaurant were not so lucky. Several died from the terrorist’s gunfire.
The CCTV footage also showed that this gunman, unlike the rest of the attackers on that fateful day, was not wearing a suicide vest. The terrorist, named Salah Abdeslam, has continued to evade capture, although some reports suggest he was spotted on news footage in Paris.
Footage like this only serves to show how utterly savage the Islamic State terrorists are. It takes a certain type of evil to fire randomly into a restaurant in hopes of killing as many unarmed innocents as possible.
