DAVID GREENE, HOST:

JONATHAN FELIPE: (Speaking French).

GREENE: And he was telling me there that he came in to work on the metro himself and that he was looking around at everyone in the car with him, feeling afraid. He feels suspicious of everyone who's coming up just to buy a cup of coffee and he sees the same fear from everyone else, Steve.
