    OK, I get that the source is an English language newspaper in France that presumably caters to English speaking ex-pats, but a group of 12 French, 4 Americans and 3 Moroccans is identified in the headline as a group of American tourists? What about the other 80% of the group of victims?

    Sorry for the trauma they've experienced, and for any losses.

    They usually target the Chinese, but that area is busy, and the police are everywhere.


    I guess it could happen in the states also, and I know it does.

    It is a different world today, or the press does a better job reporting things..hard to say..

    Pretty brazen robbery IMO. Glad no one was seriously injured.
