Hundreds of balloons were released in Paris on Sunday to commemorate the 130 people who were killed during terrorist attacks on the capital last November.
The moving ceremony was one of a several events that took place across the French capital on the first anniversary of the attacks.
French president Francois Hollande unveiled plaques commemorating the victims at the six sites around the city where the attacks took place, including the Bataclan concert hall and the Stade de France.
The balloon ceremony was organised by Life for Paris, a charity set up to care for those affected by last year's attacks.
On Saturday, the Bataclan re-opened with a concert by British singer Sting.
The event was attended by survivors of the attack, and family of those who lost their lives at the Bataclan this time last year. A two minute silence was held during the show in memory of the victims.
Members of American band Eagles of Death Metal, who were playing at the Bataclan when last year's attacks took place, joined president Hollande in Paris today to release the balloons.
As the commemorative ceremonies took place, French prime minister Manuel Valls told the BBC that France's state of emergency had been extended. France needed to "protect [its] democracy," Vills said.
Meanwhile, the leader of France's National Front party Marine Le Pen told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show that she hoped to build a "new world" with America's new president-elect Donald Trump. She said June’s Brexit vote and Trump’s victory had boosted her chances of winning the French election next year, saying the votes had “made possible what had previously been presented as impossible”.
