France marks anniversary of terror attacks

French President Francoise Hollande has unveiled a plaque at the Stade de France in Paris as the country marks the anniversary of last year's terror attacks.

130 people were killed in the French capital during a series of attacks carried out by the self-proclaimed Islamic State group.

 In all, 130 people were killed on November 13, 2015 when groups of gunmen and suicide bombers attacked the perimeter of the Stade de France sports stadium, the Bataclan theatre and a string of six bars and cafes: La Belle Equipe, Le Petit Cambodge, Le Carillon, A la Bonne Bire, Casa Nostra, and Le Comptoir Voltaire.

Mr Hollande unveiled the plaque at the stadium in honour of Manuel Dias, who was killed by suicide bombers outside the ground while France and Germany met in a football match.
