Paris Mourns Nov.13 Victims Paris Mourns Nov.13 Victims

France is to honor the 130 people who died in the November 13 attacks in Paris in a ceremony led by President Francois Hollande at the Invalides complex. Families of those killed in France’s worst-ever terror attack, claimed by the “Islamic State” militabt group, will join some of the wounded at the ceremony. In total, more than 1,000 guests are expected to attend, AFP reported. Hollande is expected to make a 20-minute speech at Les Invalides, the 17th-century building that houses a military museum and Napoleon’s tomb. It is the first time civilian victims have been honored at the complex, which is normally reserved for the honoring of members of the armed forces. In the runup to the commemoration, Hollande called on the French to hang out the nation’s flag. “Every French citizen can take part by taking the opportunity to deck their home with a blue, white and red flag, the colors of France,” government spokesman, Stephane Le Foll, quoted Hollande as saying.
