    Just as we were debating on the safety of having the Apple Expo in Paris, French authorities apprehended suspected terrorists attempting to plan a hijack of a helicopter and possibly use it as a weapon in the Paris area. While no one was definitively proven guilty of a terrorist crime at the time of the arrest, the middle eastern men who were involved had instructions on how to fly a helicopter on them as well as false IDs. Any question about the "complete" safety of Paris has been answered.
