Fiji Sun - - World News -

Paris: French Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron on Mon­day led a cer­e­mony to com­mem­o­rate the vic­tims killed in the shoot­ings and ex­plo­sions that rocked sev­eral places across Paris and in the city’s north­ern sub­urb of Saint-De­nis on Novem­ber 13, 2015. The com­mem­o­ra­tions started in front of the door of the Stade de France where the first sui­cide bomber killed one per­son and broke the calm in Parisian vi­brant venues. Ac­com­pa­nied by his pre­de­ces­sor Fran­cois Hol­lande, gov­ern­ment mem­bers and Paris mayor Anne Hi­dalgo, Macron later re­turned to the cafes and restau­rants Le Car­il­lon, Le Petit Cam­bodge, La Bonne Biere, Comp­toir Voltaire and la Belle Equipe, where he laid wreaths and ob­served one minute of si­lence. The cer­e­mony ended at the Bat­a­clan per­for­mance hall where 90 peo­ple lost their lives.
