16th November 2015, Comments 0 comments

France and other countries in Europe observed a minute's silence at noon (1100 GMT) Monday in memory of the victims of the worst-ever terror attacks on French soil.

In Paris, President Francois Hollande and his cabinet, all dressed in black, bowed their heads at the Sorbonne University, surrounded by scores of students.

And at Place de la Republique near the site of many of Friday's attacks, hundreds more stood still to remember the 129 people who were killed in the bloodbath.

Large crowds also gathered in silence by the Bataclan music venue where 89 people were died and outside a nearby bar and restaurant where 15 people were slain, AFP correspondents said.
