The ceremony was held at the military museum Les Invalides in Paris. All the government, commercial and private establishments flaunted the French red, white and blue flag while 1000s of people joined the survivors and relatives of the victims in paying homage to those who lost their lives.

President Hollande said in his speech, “The terrorists want to divide us, to oppose us, to pit us against one another. They will fail. They have the cult of death, we have the love of life. I solemnly promise you all that France will do everything to defeat the army of fanatics who have committed these crimes, that she will act tirelessly to protect her children.”
