It's in the centre of Paris, with "numerous injuries".

It seems to me that France would be most unlikely place for a terrorist attack to occur.

I'm not France-bashing, I'm just stating my opinion.

Hey Charles

Didn't you hear about the hijacked Air France plane that some hijackers wanted to crash into the eiffel tower? Or the UTA DC-10 bombed out of the sky in Africa? France has been a target of terrorism many times ! Nobody is safe from terrorism, they've even happened in Switzerland.

Okay, let me rephrase that:

It seems to me that France would be most unlikely place for an immediate terrorist attack to occur.
