Fake Paris at­tacks vic­tim jailed

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A French court has jailed a woman who falsely claimed to have been wounded in last year’s Paris at­tacks in order to claim com­pen­sa­tion. A court in Ver­sailles found un­em­ployed Laura Ouand­jli, 24, guilty of fraud for claim­ing she was hurt when ji­hadists at­tacked the Car­il­lon bar in Paris. Is­lamic State gun­men killed 130 peo­ple in sev­eral lo­ca­tions around Paris on Novem­ber 13 last year, most of them at the Bat­a­clan concert hall. Police be­came sus­pi­cious when she said she had been in­jured in an ex­plo­sion, as the Car­il­lon was only at­tacked with au­to­matic ri­fles, and other in­con­sis­ten­cies in her ac­count emerged.
