The nine-month trial in Paris of 20 individuals accused of variously perpetrating or assisting the November 13th 2015 terrorist attacks by the so-called Islamic State group in the French capital, in which 130 people died and more than 400 were wounded, opened in September. Throughout the trial, Mediapart is publishing the first-hand reactions of seven victims, who either survived the attacks or who lost loved ones, as the hearings unfold. Here, Georges Salines, whose daughter died in the shooting massacre of 90 people at the Bataclan music hall, and Christophe Naudin, who lost a close friend in the same attack which he himself survived, give their views of what emerged from the cross-examination this month of the families of the gunmen.
