Barack Obama honours Paris tragedy victims

US president Barak Obama has paid honour to the 130 people who were killed by Islamic State savages in Paris two weeks ago.

The US president’s motorcade went straight from Orly Airport to the Bataclan concert hall after he flew into the French capital this morning.

French leader Francois Hollande and the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, joined Mr Obama for the unexpected visit to the concert hall.

Each placed a single flower at a makeshift memorial outside the theatre – where the militants killed 89 music fans on November 13.

Mr Obama jetted to Paris for the opening two days of an international conference on combating climate change.

The summit – dubbed COP21 – will be be attended by hundreds of other world leaders including David Cameron and Mr Hollande.
