Bloody November night: French president honours the victims of Paris attacks

French President Francois Hollande has begun a day of official remembrance on the first anniversary of the Paris terrorist attacks.

He was joined by Prime Minister Manuel Valls and other state representatives at the Stade de France where the French president unveiled a plaque in memory of Manuel Dias, the first victim of that bloody November night.

Pulling up outside the main entrance of the Stade de France, Manuel Dias dropped off a group of spectators running late to watch France play Germany in an international football friendly.

Seconds later a suicide bomber detonated his device.

The 63-year-old died as a result.
