Incident at La Citadelle

It was around 9.40pm on the evening of Friday October 20 when a group of hooded and armed individuals burst into La Citadelle. They brought a premature end to the concert, the proceeds of which had been donated to NGOs.  The organizers had just informed these spectators that the sum raised was Rs 600,000.

“Teign partou. Arett konser fini”, a virulent voice had to shout.  At that very moment, a wind of panic was blowing through La Citadelle. While some spectators ran out of the venue, the majority preferred to stay indoors to avoid a stampede.
