France holds Paris attack memorial


Two weeks after Paris’s deadly gun and bomb attacks, a remembrance service for the victims is underway at Les Invalides in the French capital.

President Francois Hollande is among those attending the event as part of a national day of mourning.

The co-ordinated attacks, in which 130 people were killed, prompted France to declare a national state of emergency and to step up air strikes against Islamic State, the militant group that has claimed responsibility.

France has subsequently moved its flagship Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier into the eastern Mediterranean to step up its bombardment of Islamic State targets in Syria and Iraq.
