France to mourn Paris attack dead, Francois Hollande leads solemn ceremony

Paris: France on Friday will mourn the 130 people killed in the November 13 Paris attacks, with President Francois Hollande leading a solemn ceremony in honour of the victims.

Families of those killed in France's worst-ever terror attack, claimed by the Islamic State (ISIS) group, will join some of the wounded at ceremonies at the Invalides, the gilded 17th-century complex in central Paris that houses a military hospital and museum and Napoleon's tomb.

The tribute will be "national and republican," an official at the Elysee presidential palace said, referring to the French republic's creed of liberty, equality and fraternity.

"It will take place in sobriety and solemnity, reflected by the beauty of the surroundings."
