This may be an exaggeration since the permanent population of B├ęziers was about 5000, but it is known to have been swelled by refugees fleeing the Crusader army. 7000 such refugees seeking sanctuary in St Mary Magdalene church are reported to have been killed after the doors were smashed in. Reportedly some of them were blinded, dragged behind horses and used as target practice.

Just think of the hell those poor soldiers had to endure.
