As we continue to wait for the names of the more than 100 people who were slaughtered by ISIS terrorists last night in Paris, the New York Times is reporting there were Americans who were injured in the attacks.
Americans are among those wounded in the Paris terrorist attacks, and the United States government is working closely with the French authorities to identify those victims, the State Department said on Saturday.
The precise number of Americans hurt was not known.
