    Citizens of Paris hold a vigil for the victims of terrorist attacks that rocked the French capital on this day two years ago.

    This Monday, November 13 France mourns the victims of a series of terrorist attacks that occurred across Paris two years ago, claiming the lives of 130 and leaving 413 injured, making it the deadliest attack in France since World War II.
