Bataclan massacre: fathers of attacker and victim come together to write book

Presenter

Just over four years ago, Paris was the scene of one of the most gruesome terrorist atrocities of recent years.

A series of coordinated attacks across the city claimed the lives of dozens of people. Ninety people were killed in the mass shooting at the Bataclan theatre during a rock concert.

Among them were Lola Salines who was in the audience, and Samy Amimour who was one of the three attackers, and who’d returned from ISIS-held territory in Syria.

Their fathers have come together and written a book.

I went to meet them in Paris.
