Je Sui Paris

The fog of war is slowly lifting from the city of light and it appears that last nights atrocity was every bit as bad as what happened in Mumbai 7 years ago

A tremendous amount of carnage has just been wrought by what appears to have been a very small group. Reports are that there were as few as 8 gunmen, though whether this includes the suicide bombers is not entirely clear. 

Some idea of how confused early reports were, can be gleaned by reading those who were live-blogging it here, here and here

The facts are still a bit sketchy, but as horrific as this massacre is, it it not terribly surprising, and it is only a matter of time before similarly well coordinated attacks take place here. 

In the meantime, if France invokes the NATO charter over this (as is to be expected) things in the Mideast may get really the Chinese sense.
