SUBTITLED ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Rain poured from a grey Paris sky Friday (November 20), a week after deadly attacks at entertainment venues throughout the city killed 129 people. A sea of flowers, candles, notes and drawings flows onto the sidewalk in front of the restaurants Le Carillon and Le Petit Cambodge at the crossroads of rue Bichat and rue Alibert in Paris' 10th district, where attackers opened fire on people last Friday (13th). People continued to visit the makeshift shrines in front of the various attack sites, despite the heavy rain that fell relentlessly throughout the morning. "It was important for me (to come). It's really moving to see all these flowers, I think it's very sad. It's been a week (since the attacks) and we have the feeling that it was yesterday, it's impossible to get rid of this sadness that we feel," said a passer-by named Elisabeth. The French President's office announced Friday that the nation would pay homage to the victims of the Paris attacks would take place November 27. The victims of the attacks, the deadliest in France since World War Two, came from 17 different countries, many of them young people out on a Friday night at bars, restaurants, a concert hall and a football stadium. Islamic State says it carried out the attacks in retaliation for French air raids on its positions.
