Ms. Abdelmageed’s eyewitness account eerily echoes descriptions of the Paris shooters as white, clean shaven professionals.
Sally Abdelmageed: I heard umm shots fired and it was you know from an automatic weapon so you know it was very unusual… why, you know why would we hear shots? As we look out the window a second set of shots goes off, and its just pop-pop-pop-pop-pop-pop and we saw a man fall to the floor.
Then we just looked and we saw three men dressed in all black military attire with vests on they were holding assault rifles and they as soon as they opened the door to building three and one of them opened up the door to building three, he started to spray shoot, you know shoot all over into the room, that’s the room that we typically have conferences in, and we just heard more gunshots go off.
Scott Pelley: You’re certain that you saw three men?
Sally Abdelmageed: Yes, it looked like their skin color was yeah, was white. They looked like they were athletic build and umm… they appeared to be tall.
