The trial of 20 people charged over the November 13, 2015 jihadist attacks in Paris, that were France's deadliest peacetime atrocity, will get underway on September 8, 2021. 130 people were killed and 350 wounded when Islamist suicide bombers and gunmen attacked the Stade de France stadium, bars and restaurants in central Paris and the Bataclan concert hall. More than five years after the events and in the lead up to the trial, AFP spoke to survivors, first responders and former government officials about that night.
