According to L’Express newspaper, the first victim to die was a Muslim mother of seven who wore a veil.
Fatima Charrihi’s son Hamza said she was with nieces and nephews when she was killed, and that his brother had tried to revive her but she had died instantly.
He said: “She wore the veil, practising an Islam of the middle ground. A real Islam. Not that of the terrorists.”
L’Express published a photo of her residence permit.
