Memorial Ceremonies Held Two Years After Deadly Paris Terror Attacks

Memorial Ceremonies Held Two Years After Deadly Paris Terror Attacks”

Monday marks two years since the deadly terror attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

The first ceremony was at the Stade de France, where three suicide bombers blew themselves up after failing to get into a France v Germany football match.

Ex-president Francois Hollande, who was at the game, is accompanying Mr Macron.

Flowers were laid and victims names read out at otherwise silent homage ceremonies in the presence of President Emmanuel Macron at the six sites struck on November 13 2015 in attacks for which the Islamist State group claimed responsibility.

Dozens managed to flee when police stormed the venue to end the bloodbath. The attacks that night ushered in almost two years of state of emergency, replaced just two weeks ago with a tough counterterrorism law allowing police wider latitude against anyone suspected of links to radicalism.

All but one of the attackers were killed.
