Lola Ouzounian died in the Paris attacks

PARIS—The parents of Lola Ouzounian, a 17-year-old Armenian girl who was attending the concert at Bataclan when the venue was attacked by terrorists on Friday, confirmed her death, adding they had identified her remains.

Chairman of the Coordinating Committee for Armenians in France (CCAF) Mourad Papazian told that law enforcement officials told Ouzounian’s parents, who then had the harrowing task of identifying Lola’s body.

Lola was attending the Eagles of Death Metal concert at Bataclan when the terrorists stormed the venue. During the commotion the father and daughter were separated. There has been search for Lola since Friday.

Paris became the latest target of attacks by groups affiliated with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, ISIL or Da’esh, as it is commonly called in Arabic. French officials put the death toll at 129, with 352 injured, 99 of them critically when terrorists attacked several sites in Paris on Friday, one of them the Stade de France, where French President Francois Hollande was attending a friendly match between France and Germany.

A date for Ouzounian’s funeral services has not been announced.

    This is heartbreaking. I heard her poor father on the BBC, desperately trying to find his daughter after the mayhem – brought me to tears. R.I.P. Lola. My deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.

    I have a 16-year old son and another 20-year old son. I understand how much our children cherish life and I know how much we do for our children from the day they are born. They mean so much to us and give us so much love in return. Find peace, little angel, what a wonderful picture of you. My deepest sympathy and condolences to the parents and family.
