paris.bomb.86 17th September, 1986 : A bomb hurled from a speeding BMW car into a Paris department store today killed four and wounded 44, including many children. “This is a bloody massacre,” said a fireman as panic broke out in the busy Left Bank street. It was a fifth bomb in a week-long Arab terrorist onslaught which has shaken Parisians. Last week Jacques Chirac, the Prime Minister, announced tough new measures against terrorism. Visas are now required for all non-EEC visitors, and armed soldiers patrol the Paris streets.
