The family of a young Hobart woman who was shot during the Paris terror attacks are now by her side in hospital.

19-year-old Emma Parkinson was shot in the hip on Friday night as terrorist gunmen attacked the Batalacan concert hall, killing 89 people.

She underwent surgery the following day and is now recovering well in a Paris hospital.

Her mother Lisa and uncle Michael flew into Charles de Gaulle Airport on Monday afternoon to be met by an Australian embassy staffer and taken to see Emma.

Her uncle told journalists he was “not happy to be here” and they’d make a further statement to the media “once we’ve had a chat to Emma”.
