Paris Terror Attack Venue Bataclan Will Reopen in 2016: Owners
The Bataclan concert hall where terrorists massacred 89 people — including two workers — is to reopen next year, local media reported Wednesday.
The Paris venue, where California band Eagles of Death Metal was playing at the time of the attack, will be internally rebuilt, managers told Le Figaro newspaper.
The announcement came as another of the Nov. 13 attack sites, the Café Bonne Biere, prepared to reopen on Friday.
In total, 130 people died in the deadliest attacks on French soil in more than a half-century, plunging France into a state of emergency.
In their first interview since the attacks, Jules Frutos and Olivier Poubelle, who together own 30 percent of the Bataclan, told Le Figaro they hope to reopen the venue at the end of 2016.
