Stupid at the very least. Venal, if it was done on purpose. Alerting, that is, the jihadists who took over a Paris kosher grocery in January to the hiding place of seven of its Jewish patrons.
“As the drama was unfolding Jan. 9, the French news channel BFMTV reported live that there was a woman hiding from jihadist gunman Amedy Coulibaly in the refrigerated area of the Hyper Cacher supermarket in the midst of France’s days-long terror spree, which included the attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices….
“Though the reporter pointed to one hiding hostage, there were seven people, including a 3-year-old child and a 1-month-old baby, hiding in the store’s cold room.”
Patrick Klugman, a lawyer representing the survivors, said the news channel ‘lacked the most basic precautions’ and endangered the hidden patrons.
The station, which has apologized rather belatedly, is now the subject of a criminal complaint by the survivors to the Paris police. Gig them frogs!
