Place de la République is again, like after the Charlie Hebdo attack in January, a place where people gather to express their feelings, this time after the November 13 killings. These photos were taken some four days after the event. Some flowers were already withering, most of the candle lights had had stopped burning, but many messages were still to be read, seen… News media and police forces were present.
The Bataclan saw the most victims, 89 dead and many seriously injured. You can still read “Eagles” as “tonight’s performers” on the facade as well as a banner added later telling that liberty is indestructible.
More or less simultaneously a number of bars and restaurants were attacked – “La Casa Nostra” and “Café Bonne Bière”. 5 victims….
… “Le Carillon” and “Le Petit Cambodge”. 15 victims….
… and “La Belle Equipe”. 19 victims.
In total, for the moment, some 128 dead (+ 7 terrorists) and hundreds injured, including some 40 seriously. More than 200 still in hospital - five days later.
