Paris terror attacks causes people to leave country


DULLES, Va. (WUSA9) -- The terror attacks in Paris and the fallout developments since in France are causing some people to want to leave the country.

Laura LE-Goff left Paris and arrived at Dulles International Airport Wednesday afternoon.

She has a dual citizenship in France and the United States. After living in France and Europe for the last 25 years, she doesn't know when she'll return home because of the terror attacks in Paris.

"It's kind of scary wondering if i'm going back or when," she said.

In light of the terror attacks in Paris and uncertain times, LE-Goff doesn't know what the future holds.

"It's hard right now, I have a daughter who was planning to spend Thanksgiving in Paris and she still wants to go and I have to tell her no way," said LE-Golf, wondering if there would be further attacks.

That uncertainty has had a ripple effect on some world travelers.

A mother going to Germany to see her daughter got emotional talking about the Syrian refugees who are now impacted because of the terror attacks.

"I think it's very sad, heartbreaking," she said. "Women and children, it's really emotional seeing these kids on the beach. They didn't do anything wrong just because a few psychotic nuts people want to blame millions of people for what they did."

"I have a return flight in January but not sure if I will be on that flight or not," said LE-Goff.

Her husband has stayed behind. LE-Goff is hoping things settle down so she feels comfortable enough to return home next year.

Other passengers expressed concern over the different level of security at various airports.
