The carnage in Paris has sent shudders through the tourism sector in one of the world's most visited cities, with hotel owners, tour operators and others in the industry hoping the expected drop-off in visitors will not last long.Shares in tourism companies fell sharply across Europe Monday on expectations that people would cut back travel plans after Islamist militants launched coordinated attacks across Paris killing at least 132 people in locations of the type that might be visited by tourists.The Louvre and other attractions such as the Paris Opera reopened Monday after shutting due to the killings, but Disneyland Paris remained closed through Tuesday and the Eiffel Tower will stay closed until further notice.On the Paris bourse, Air France, Aeroports de Paris, Eurotunnel and hotel group Accor were all down about 5 percent or more over concern that tourism will see a downturn.Effective immediately, its policy allows for free amendments or cancellations for customers with future bookings to Paris and Disneyland Paris, up to and including Nov. 20 .Disneyland Paris will be closed through Tuesday as part of France's three-day national mourning period.
