Speaking with: The Daily Beast’s Christopher Dickey on reporting on and living through terrorism in Paris.

Since the start of 2015, more than 230 people have died in France as the result of terror attacks.

The three major attacks – the shootings at the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, the co-ordinated assaults on the night of November 13, 2015, (including the storming of the Bataclan Theatre), and the piloting of a truck down the Promenade des Anglais in Nice on Bastille Day 2016 – have left the French rattled and led to an increase in security across the country.

Colleen Murrell, senior journalism lecturer and researcher at Monash University, speaks with The Daily Beast’s Paris-based world news editor, Christopher Dickey, about what it’s like to live in and report on Paris in the wake of these attacks.
