Local celebrities took to Instagram to express their sympathies and offer prayers following the terrorist attacks that left more than a hundred victims dead in Paris.
According to reports and eyewitness accounts, for "10 horrific minutes," unidentified gunmen opened fire at concertgoers at the Bataclan theater in Paris on Friday night (Parisian time), November 13.
KC, who resided in Paris during her college years, was deeply saddened upon hearing the news.
Deeply saddened by the current news. Paris became so lovely after all the struggles, revolutions and violence it went through in its history. Today terror attacks hit the city like never before... May God protect my friends, neighborhood and loved ones who continue to reside in Paris. May Parisians find comfort in these times and remain safe in or out of their homes. Mon cœur est à Paris et avec vous tous.ðŸ’› #StateOfEmergency
