The Croatian Embassy in France are in constant contact with French authorities and as soon as there is any official information we will announce it,” the Ministry, who have with condemned the attack, stated.
Croatian taekwondo champion Ana Zaninović, who was in a Paris hotel sleeping during last night’s attacks, told daily 24sata that she was woken by sirens in the street.
“After I woke up I saw what was happening in Paris. I could not sleep, it is hard to describe the feeling, it is like a film. People are not going out and the streets are half empty. It is a horrible feeling to know nowhere is safe. Not in the hotel or on the street.
Zaninović was due to compete in an event in Paris but that has now been cancelled and the former world champion will now head home.
“Thankfully the airports are working. I am coming home on Sunday. I can’t wait to get back to Croatia,” she told 24sata.
