When Syrian war refugee Lina Mahameed saw TV reports of the recent Paris attacks, she recognized her own story reflected in the brutality. The 41-year-old artist is now drawing portraits of some of the 130 people killed in the Nov. 13 attacks in the French capital, for which the extremist Daesh (ISIS) group claimed responsibility.Mahameed found photos of the victims on the Internet, and used printouts for pencil sketches of their faces: a young blonde girl seated before a meal, a bespectacled man in a green jacket smiling calmly, a dozen people staring straight at the camera.Left with three children, Mahameed hopes the portraits will warm the hearts of the victims' families, though she hasn't figured out how to deliver the drawings.
