In somber ceremonies, France is remembering the horrors of one year ago, when Islamic extremists attacked bars, restaurants and other symbols of the joyful life that Paris embodies, turning a night on the town into a spasm of violence that shook the nation to its core.President Francois Hollande was visiting each of the seven attack sites Sunday to honor the 130 people killed that Friday night and the hundreds injured. Elodie Suigo, who lost six friends in the attack, said that it was a hard night, even though she loved the music.With more than 400 rounds fired within 10 minutes at the restaurants, the coordinated attacks were a wake-up call for France and for Europe.Neighboring Belgium, the starting point of the attacks in Paris, was hit a few months later on March 22 with attacks on its airport and a metro station that killed 32 people.
