Victims of terror fight for compensation

By Imogen Lamb

"Anger makes you do things you aren't expected to do," says Guillaume Denoix de Saint Marc. The founder of the French Association for the Victims of Terrorism lost his father in a 1989 attack on a DC10 plane. The anger he felt led him to become chief negotiator with Libyan officials that led to financial compensation for the familes of the 170 victims. In September 2011 his group will organise the Seventh International Congress for Victims of Terrorism in Paris to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the DC10 attack.
