On November 13, 2015, Islamic State (IS) group terrorists conducted a series of attacks in and around the French capital, killing 130 people and wounding hundreds. Four years later, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, French Justice Minister Nicole Belloubet and Interior Minister Christophe Castaner are leading commemorations across Paris.

The day’s events start at Stade de France, where jihadists killed one person outside the sports stadium during a football match that fateful night.

French officials will then go to the bars and cafés in eastern Paris that were targeted on November 13, 2015, followed by the Bataclan concert hall.
