France: Parisian bars observe minute of silence for terror attack victims

France, Paris
November 18, 2015 at 01:30 GMT +00:00 · Published

Cafes, bars and restaurants in Paris observed a minute of silence on Tuesday at 21:00 local time (20:00 GMT), to pay tribute to the victims of Friday's terror attacks.

The action, which used the hashtags #tousaubistrot and #jesuisenterrace, aimed to draw people to the city's bars and restaurants once again as France's hospitality sector hopes to bring their business back to normality following Friday's attacks.

At least 132 people were killed and more than 349 left injured, including 99 critically, after a series of coordinated attacks were carried out at six different locations across Paris on Friday evening. At least 87 of those victims were killed after gunmen opened fire during a concert at the Bataclan theatre, taking dozens hostage before detonating suicide bombs. Dozens more were killed in attacks at the French national stadium and a string of popular bars and restaurants. The, so-called, Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack.
