Banksy’s tribute piece to Bataclan Terror Victims has been stolen from Paris venue

'We are today filled with a deep sense of indignation'

Banksy’s mural, which paid tribute to the victims of the November 2015 terror attack at Paris’ Bataclan, was stolen from the venue late Friday night.

The mural was painted on a Bataclan fire exit door in June 2018, and it portrayed a woman mourning in a veil outside of the venue where 90 people were shot and killed by terrorists at an Eagles of Death Metal concert.
 


“We are today filled with a deep sense of indignation,” the Bataclan wrote on Twitter, according to a translation by Rolling Stone. “The work of Banksy, a symbol of contemplation belonging to all – residents, Parisians and citizens of the world – has been taken from us.”

According to the BBC, a “group of hooded individuals armed with angle grinders” removed the door, placing it in a van late on Friday night.
