Sting reopens Bataclan concert hall in Paris

In the hours and days after the attacks, Paris and the people of France showed their resilience and that of the City of Light.

"It is hard today to end the state of emergency", Valls told BBC television as France marked exactly one year since the Nov 13, 2015 jihadist attacks that left 130 people dead.

French President Francois Hollande and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo are visiting each site struck by Islamist extremists in the capital on the night of November 13, 2015 to commemorate the anniversary of the attacks that killed 130 people.

The Islamic State group, or ISIS, claimed responsibility for the attacks.

While stressing he remained "very cautious", Valls said the risk of similar coordinated attacks on France appeared to have diminished.

Calgaro's lawsuit also notes that state law does not give parents a "cause of action to restore partial or full parental rights". LGBTQ advocates, however, argue that Calgaro's lawsuit and its language could have detrimental effects on her daughter.

Indie rock band Eagles of Death Metal were in the middle of a sold-out gig at the venue on November 13 previous year when terrorists stormed the theater, taking concertgoers hostage and killing 89 people, including the group's merchandise manager Nick Alexander.

But outside the venue on Sunday, present with the band for the unveiling of a plaque dedicated to the massacre's victims, Hughes has denied he was tossed out.

The Bataclan said all 1,000 Sting tickets sold out in less than 30 minutes for the concert hall that has a 1,500-person capacity. No specifically Jewish sites were targeted.

Learning to live again after extremists killed his father was "a personal challenge, but it concerns us all", Dias said, crediting his father, who came to France at 18, with life lessons like the need for education.

On the eve of the tragedy's one-year anniversary, Sting helped to reopen the Bataclan with a tribute show, during which he held a moment's silence to honour the lives lost in the atrocity. He then launched into "Fragile", the same first song he started his 9/11 show with.

It has viewed the pivot as a USA attempt to contain China's rise as a military and economic power. In a recent Gallup poll, 58 per cent of South Koreans said they were in favour of them.

But Hughes - in Paris to attend other commemorations - said he had not tried to enter the hall at all.

"They came, I threw them out-there are things you can't forgive", Frutos said.

Singer Jesse Hughes previously accused security staff of having advance knowledge about the attack - though he apologised for the comments.

The Bataclan was closed Sunday for a special ceremony. "We shall not forget them", said the 65-year-old singer. Everyone was looking at each other thinking: "'what do we do here, we are lucky to be here so let's get in.' We think about those who are not there anymore and we think about this place, how it was a year ago", said Elodie Suigo, friend of victims.
