The Sun: Ett år sedan massakern i Paris

A YEAR ON

Bataclan massacre – what happened during the Paris terror attacks, where is the theatre and how many died?

This Sunday is the first anniversary of the horrific attacks

This Sunday marks the first anniversary of the Paris terror attacks, a brutal series of co-ordinated attacks which shocked the world.

On Friday, November 13 last year, ISIS terrorists carried out suicide bombings and several mass shootings in the city and its northern suburb, Saint-Denis.

A year on, 20 victims remain in hospital – while thousands are said to be having counselling to cope with their ordeals.

Meanwhile, seven of the nine perpetrators were killed during the attacks or in subsequent police raids – while Salah Abdeslam and Mohamed Abrini remain in custody.

What happened during the Paris attacks?

The first of the attacks happened at 9:20pm at the Stade de France, where France were playing Germany in an international football friendly match.

Two other suicide bombers wearing identical suicide vests detonated them outside the stadium shortly afterwards.

Meanwhile, further into the centre of Paris, gunmen stormed cafes and restaurants.

The first shooting was reported at Le Carillon bar, in the city’s 10th arrondissement (district).

Then, witnesses said a man crossed the road – Rue Alibert – and carried out another shooting at Le Petit Cambodge restaurant.

A few streets south, two gunmen then attacked diners in front of the Cafe Bonne Biere and La Casa Nostra pizzeria.

After that attack, the perpetrators – who travelled from location to location in a black Seat car – moved a few streets further south, attacking La Bella Equipe bar in the 11th arrondissement.

Then, at 9:40pm a suicide bomber – Brahim Abdelslam, brother of Salah – entered a cafe on the nearby Boulevard Voltaire and placed an order before detonating his vest.

Around the same time, a mass shooting and hostage situation took place at the Bataclan theatre. There were around 1500 audience members in the venue, watching a sold-out concert by Californian rock band Eagles of Death Metal.

Around an hour after the concert began, gunmen entered the building and opened fire on the crowd from the mezzanine – which some audience members initially thought was pyrotechnics.

At around 10pm, the attackers took as many as 100 music fans hostage, and witnesses heard the gunmen mention Syria. At around 00:20, top security forces entered the hall. The siege came to an end when police shot one gunman, causing his suicide belt to blow up, before the other two attackers detonated theirs.

The attackers were identified as Omar Ismail Mostefai, 29, Samy Animour, 28, and Foued Mohamed-Aggad, 23.

Where is the Bataclan theatre?

The Bataclan theatre is located on Boulevard Voltaire in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, around two miles from the Notre Dame Cathedral.

It was designed in 1864 and opened in 1865, but closed following the attacks to allow authorities to work on the site and for renovation in the wake of the attacks.

It is now due to reopen, and Sting will headline an anniversary concert on Saturday.
