12:14 am
the attackers did not seem closely connected to is. and the terms of economic impact, there was not that much lasting impact. this time, it is an attack on everyone indiscriminate. it looks much more organized and more closely connected, for the time being. it looks much more closely connected to what is going on in syria directly. there is a shift in a strategy from isis, extending their reach outside. we have seen the attacks in just last week, and now, in paris. everyone will be wondering, what is next? that could affect more people. that could affect travel and tourism. it will require some kind of response, which we have already seen a some allusion to. anna: we have seen that from france in particular.
