’I wish they could love us’: Michael Petrou reports from Paris

Maclean’s foreign correspondent speaks to refugees just outside Paris who express their grief and fear about the attacks

Thirty kilometres away from Paris, a number of refugees from Iraq and Syria are staying at a temporary hostel. In conversation with Maclean’s foreign correspondent Michael Petrou, who visited them, they described the attacks in Paris as painful. It was, after all, the kind of attack they were trying to escape when they fled their homes.
