A woman is being evacuated from the Bataclan theater after a shooting in Paris yesterday.

A Jamaican woman is among the hundreds of persons who escaped injuries in last night’s deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.

Business executive Marsha Smikle says the attacks, which claimed 128 lives, began minutes after she had dinner with a group of friends a short distance away.
