President Hollande will render homage to “all the victims of terrorism” on September 19 at les Invalides in Paris, the Secretary of State charged with helping victims and their families, Juliette Méadel, has announced in Nice.
She added that it is absolutely necessary to honour the victims, which is a global act of homage and remembrance. The chosen date marks an atrocity in 1989, when a French DC-10 of the UTA airline exploded in mid-air on a flight from Brazzaville to Paris, killing 170 people, including 54 French nationals.
Ms Méadel was in Nice to meet families of the 86 victims of the attack on the Promenade des Anglais on July 14.
Some 85 people remain in hospital since Bastille Day.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
