Jessie Hughes of Eagles of Death Metal claims that on the day of the Paris terrorist attack six security guards didn’t turn up for work.
Hughes says that absent workers must have known of what was about to happen at the Eagles of Death Metal concert that November 2015 night at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris.
Speaking with Fox News Hughes said, “When I first got to the venue and walked in, I walked past the dude who was supposed to be the security guard for the backstage. He didn’t even look at me. I immediately went to the promoter and said, ‘Who’s that guy? I want to put another dude on,’ and he goes, ‘well some of the other guards aren’t here yet,’ and eventually I found out that six or so wouldn’t show up at all.”
“It seems rather obvious they had a reason not to show up,” he concludes.
Terrorists invaded the Bataclan Theatre in Paris during a performance by Eagles of Death Metal on 13 November 2015. 130 people were killed, a further 368 injured. Seven of the terrorists also died in the battle. It was the deadliest attack in French soil since World War II.
