The cost of Islam: Terror attacks cost Paris region €750m in lost tourism, officials say

Terror attacks have scared off thousands of tourists from Paris and its top attractions, leading to a €750m drop in the region’s revenues, officials have said.

Strikes and floods have also taken their toll, overshadowing the boost from the Euro 2016 football tournament and leaving the tourism industry in need of massive new investment and a rescue package, they added.

“It’s time to realise that the tourism sector is going through an industrial disaster,” the head of the Paris region tourist board, Frédéric Valletoux, said in a statement on Tuesday.
