Salaam-StDenis2015

Salaam-StDenis2015 is inspired by the real life event of Hasna Aït Boulahcen. Hasna, erroneously labelled the first female suicide bomber in Europe, spends the last hours of her life as both host and hostage of her cousin and accomplice, both involved in the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015 in Paris. The story is transposed to London, so as to emphasise the international aspects of the events.
