Lyon's festival of lights remembers Paris victims

France’s second city, Lyon, has scaled down its annual Festival of Lights due to security concerns after the November 13 Paris attacks. Whereas in recent years scores of light installations of all sizes have been dotted across the city, this year organisers have provided a more simple memorial to the victims of the attacks. The people of Lyon have marked the occasion of the Fete Des Lumieres, as they do every year, by placing lit candles on their window sills.
