Rain poured from the gray skies above Paris on Friday, one week after deadly attacks in the City of Light killed 130 people. A sea of flowers, candles, notes and drawings flowed onto the sidewalk in front of Le Carillon and Le Petit Cambodge, the restaurants in Paris' 10th arrondissement where attackers opened fire on diners last week.
Locals and tourists continued to visit the makeshift shrines despite the heavy rain throughout the day.
"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 passerby named Elisabeth.
The French president's office announced on Friday that the nation would pay homage to the victims of the Paris attacks on Nov. 27.
The victims of the attacks, the deadliest in France since World War II, 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. The Islamic State group says it carried out the attacks in retaliation for French air raids in Syria.
