Two robbers thought they had an easy victim. They spotted 7a-year-old Jennifer Smiles in a car and decided to rob her. One of the men jumped into the passenger seat with a gun and demanded Smiles’ money.
However, Smiles wasn’t about to give in to their demands. She responded by grabbing the robber and his gun and exchanging blows.

streets, beautiful French women, the culture, the art at the Louvre …. But for some Japanese tourists, it’s a nightmare. Every year, about a dozen Japanese tourists have to be repatriated from the French capital suffering from what is known as the “Paris syndrome”. This is what happens when they discover that Paris is not quite as wonderful as they expected.

Around a million Japanese travel to France every year. However, reality can come as a shock. So far this year, the Japanese embassy in Paris has had to repatriate four people, sending them back by plane with a doctor or nurse to help them get over the shock. Apparently, the only cure is to go back to Japan … and never return to Paris.
