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.
