Each one a person

The names of some of the people killed in Paris are being shared on social media, the BBC reports.

  • Djamila Houd, 41, originally from Dreux, west of Paris – “All the mothers of families share Djamila’s mother’s pain,” the local newspaper said (in French)
  • Thomas Ayad, 34, from Amiens – he worked for Mercury Records, a division of Universal Music France, and was at the Bataclan with two colleagues. The amateur hockey club he played for said on its Facebook page it would hold a minute’s silence for him on Sunday.

Perhaps from Algerian backgrounds, perhaps Muslims themselves, eating in those haram restaurants or listening to that haram music.

  • Universal Music France president Pascal Negre named the other two employees killed as Marie and Manu on Twitter, but did not provide their surnames. The name Marie is reported to refer to Marie Mosser, a communications and digital marketing worker, according to her Twitter profile.
  • A man nicknamed “Dado”, 44, from Ceyrat in the central Auvergne region. The man, who worked for the tax office and was unmarried, was at the Bataclan, France 3 reported
  • French footballer Lassana Diarra revealed on Twitter that he had lost his cousin, Asta Diakite, in one of the shootings. He said she was like a “big sister” to him. Diarra was playing in the football match against Germany at the Stade de France on Friday night, the scene of one of the attacks. Her father confirmed her death on Twitter, after using the platform to try and find her.
  • Cedric Mauduit, a local council official from Calvados in Normandy – he was at the Bataclan with five friends
  • Mathieu Hoche, a journalist for the France 24 TV news channel, died at the Bataclan. He was young and had a six-year-old son, a colleague tweeted
  • Quentin Boulanger, 29, originally from Rheims but had lived in Paris for several years – he was at the Bataclan
  • Guillaume B Decherf, a journalist with Les Inrocks magazine, was at the Bataclan. The father of two had written about the Eagles of Death metal’s latest album, Les Inrocks said
  • Lola Salines was at the Bataclan. Her father confirmed her death on Twitter, after using the platform to try and find her.

And that’s only a few of them.
