Hundreds of people on Sunday attended a memorial service and bell ringing at Paris’ Notre Dame cathedral in the memory of the 129 victims killed in Friday’s gun and bomb attacks across the city.
Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo was among those attending the mass, which was held by Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois.
Like other landmarks in the French capital, the historic Catholic cathedral has been closed to visitors since the killings, but opened to service attendees mourning the massacre that left another 352 injured, 99 critically, in the worst attacks in Paris since World War II.
