Scores of survivors of the Bataclan assault, the worst in the attacks across Paris by jihadist gunmen a year ago, will attend a concert by Sting to mark the anniversaryRock star Sting will on Saturday reopen the Bataclan, the revered Paris concert hall where jihadists massacred 90 people, with a hugely symbolic show to mark the first anniversary of France’s bloodiest terror attacks. On Friday, November 13, 2015, a night of horror began with three suicide bombers who blew themselves up outside the Stade de France.
