Paris cafe reopens two months after attacks

One of the bars targeted in a series of terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13 reopened Wednesday, two months after gunmen shot more than a dozen people on its terraces.

Le Carillon, a popular cafe and bar near the Canal Saint Martin, has been the site of impromptu memorials since the shootings. Murals have adorned its walls and flags have been strung up in the streets around the cafe after the attacks, which claimed 130 lives.

The bar was one of some six cafes and restaurants targeted. The Islamic State extremist group claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Another bar, A La Bonne Biere, reopened its doors in December.

The Eagles of Death Metal band, whose performance was cut short by attackers who stormed the Bataclan concert hall and killed 90 people, has scheduled a return performance in February in Paris.
