London: A British woman, who survived the Paris terror attack by hiding inside a cellar when ISIS gunmen opened fire with their automatic weapons, revealed how they cut open the stomachs of the wounded victims to ensure they are dead.

Citing this British survivor, the mirror.co.uk reported how the ISIS gunmen used knives to slit the stomachs of victims as they lay on the floor.

Mariesha Payne, from Perthshire, hid in a cellar for three hours as the butchers rampaged through the packed Bataclan Theatre in Paris. She said that she knew people were being tortured because she could hear their screams.

"We knew people were being tortured in the theatre because we heard people screaming, but they were not being shot and these were singular screams,” the report quoted her as saying.

"When we escaped a man trapped on the level where it happened said to us the terrorists were stabbing people in the stomach. We were told they were throwing explosives at people. It was a horrendous ordeal," Payne, who isa mother of two children said.

Payne was attending the Eagles of Death Metal show when the terrorists struck. She cheated her death “by turning right into a cellar instead of left where a gunman was picking off victims,” the report added.
