Paris Muslim leaders mark 6 years since Bataclan attacks


PARIS (AP) — The Paris Mosque is marking the sixth anniversary of the attack at the Bataclan concert hall that killed 90 people in the French capital. Muslim leaders laid a wreath at the venue one day before a broader commemoration is due to take place. The mosque is holding its commemoration early to fall on a Friday, a special weekly prayer day, in a sign of respect. Fourteen men currently are on trial in connection with a series of coordinated terror attacks in Paris that killed 130 people on Nov. 13, 2015. On Friday, relatives of victims also visited the Bataclan, saying it was a show of inclusion and to demonstrate that no community must be vilified.
