Paris re­mem­bers vic­tims

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

In somber cer­e­monies, France is re­mem­ber­ing the hor­rors of one year ago, when ex­trem­ists at­tacked bars, restau­rants and other sym­bols of the joy­ful life that Paris em­bod­ies, turn­ing a night on the town into a spasm of vi­o­lence that shook the na­tion to its core. Pres­i­dent Fran­cois Hollande was visit­ing each of the seven at­tack sites yes­ter­day to hon­our the 130 peo­ple killed that night and the hun­dreds in­jured. Notre Dame Cathe­dral was hold­ing an evening ser­vice. The re­mem­brances come after a con­cert on Satur­day in which Bri­tish mu­si­cian St­ing re­opened the Bat­a­clan con­cert hall, per­form­ing be­fore an au­di­ence that in­cluded fam­i­lies of the 90 rev­ellers slain there a year ago by ex­trem­ists with weapons and ex­plo­sive belts.
