Families begin burying victims of Paris attacks

The families and friends of those who died in the Paris terror attacks have begun the harrowing task of burying their loved ones.

Huge processions and personalised coffins are among the ways French families are honouring the young victims of the attacks.

Of the 130 fatalities in the carnage, 105 were French, hailing from 29 towns and cities and ranging in age from 23 to 41.


The family of one victim, 33-year-old Aurelie de Peretti, launched a worldwide appeal for an artist to decorate de Peretti’s coffin in a manner befit for the rock fan.

Eight separate artists came together to collaborate on the project.

France will hold a national tribute to the victims on Friday in Paris.

President Francois Hollande is expected to attend, along with many of the 350 people injured in the attacks.
