Guessing the subway station in my ETA is right near there too
Champ de Mars is the metro beside the Eiffel tower, if I remember right. Any more news on what's going on? My husband just said there was something happening there?

Syrian who apparently passed through Greece as refugee was 'one of Paris killers'
They've edited the article and headline, but anyway:
Investigators also told French media a Syrian passport, belonging to a man born in 1970, and an Egyptian passport had been found lying close by the bodies of two other jihadis, both of whom blew themselves up in the course of their attacks.
It said the holder of the Syrian Passport entered via Greece Oct. 3rd...
It did not say he was a refugee.
From a pure strategic standpoint...Moving operatives to specific planned locations/times etc. ...A refugee caravan is insanely unreliable..you don't know when and where that person will arrive..
Why not just have them board a plane with a passport and fly comfortably where you need them....with money in pocket and resources??
I understand the convenience for ideological purposes of claiming that terrorists sneak in with refugees...but apart from fear mongering purposes...it makes no sense for a terrorist operation.
It would be hard to begin coordination and planning when you terrorist plant is lost walking on some railroad track half starved or gets repeatedly re-routed or denied at border crossings.
ISIS has money and means...they needed these people at precise places, well funded, well prepared, in good health and on time. They didn't send them in refugee caravans.
You can't really stop individuals who will blow themselves up alongside others unless you know before hand who they are.
I know what you thinking, how is it possible to pull off coordinated attack in the modern days, without intelligence service's noticing it before hand with all those high tech and surveillance. I wonder that as well.
Targeting people in clubs and restaraunts is the weakest, most cowardly way to make your point.
They are nothing but morons that are cannon fodder being used by someone else. Like the 'royal' family or 'supreme' leaders.
