ISIS fears lead Brabant school to cancel Paris trip
The school trip that 400 graduating students from KSE Etten-Leur would have taken to Paris has been cancelled, due to the threat of attack by ISIS. Although the chances of an attack is small, the school is not taking any chances. This is the result of consultations within the education institution after it became known last week that networks of Islamic State (ISIS) plans to attack the metro of Paris and New York. "Then the ball started rolling. Some parents were worried." the headmaster explains. The bus trip, which would take almost 24 hours, has not been permanently cancelled. They will wait and see whether the students can go to Paris at a later date, otherwise they'll choose a different destination.
