France remembers attack victims
(19 mins ago)

France is mourning and honoring those killed in the November 13 attacks in a somber ceremony in Paris.
French President Francois Hollande will preside over Friday's ceremony, which will include the government, top lawmakers, the Paris mayor and former President Nicolas Sarkozy as well as far right leader Marine Le Pen. The national anthem, which became a symbol of the country's resilience from the moment the terrified crowd filed out of the Stade de France in song, will ring out. No photos of the dead will be shown.
