President Obama Pays His Respects to Paris Victims By Laying Rose at the Bataclan
President Barack Obama paid his respects to the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks on Monday by placing a single white rose outside the Bataclan concert hall, where 90 people were killed.
Joined by French President Francois Hollande and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, the president paused at a makeshift memorial and bowed his head for a moment of silence.
He visited the Bataclan around 1 a.m. on Monday, shortly after arriving at Orly airport. He is in the city to attend a summit on climate change with 150 other world leaders.
"We have come to Paris to show our resolve," he said at the summit. "We offer our condolences to the people of France for the barbaric attacks on this beautiful city.
"We stand united in solidarity not only to deliver justice to the terrorist network responsible for those attacks but to protect our people and uphold the enduring values that keep us strong and keep us free."
The November 13 attack left 130 people dead and hundreds wounded in multiple attacks across the city.
