PARIS – Suspects started to arrive in the Palais de Justice courthouse, in central Paris, ahead of the trial of 20 men suspected of involvement in a jihadist rampage across the capital nearly six years ago.

The three suspects who have arrived are the ones who are not behind bars. The others are yet to be seen in the courtroom. The trial is set to start at 12:30 (1030 GMT).

Some 130 people were killed and hundreds wounded when gunmen with suicide vests attacked six bars and restaurants, the Bataclan concert hall and a sports stadium on Nov. 13, 2015, leaving deep scars on the nation’s psyche.
