Police on Monday said they had arrested an Algerian man in the southern town of Bari on suspicion of belonging to the militant "Islamic State" (IS) group and involvement in the Paris attacks. The coordinated incidents on November 13, 2015, which killed 130 and left hundreds more wounded, were France's deadliest attacks since World War II. The perpetrators targeted people with guns and explosives at the Bataclan concert hall , as well as restaurants in eastern Paris and the vicinity of the Stade de France sports stadium. Who is the arrested suspect? A statement said that the man, named by the La Repubblica daily newspaper as Athmane T., was believed to have provided counterfeit documents to the gunmen and suicide bombers. Investigators said the 36-year-old was part of an IS cell that had been operating in France and Belgium with his two brothers, according to Italian media.

There is no way that I belong in the front row. But that is where the meticulous planners behind Dior ’s spring/summer 2021 show have placed me, just seats away from the billionaire founder of LVMH Bernard Arnault and his family. The vibe in the French capital matches the rainy and foreboding weather. New coronavirus infections in France are rising again to about 12,000 per day now, prompting the government to impose new restrictions. The bars must close by 10pm and masks are required pretty much everywhere. Yet the show must go on. The four major fashion weeks that punctuate Paris life annually bring in €1.2 billion (S$1.9 billion) in economic activity to the city. The masked guests filtering into the Dior show have to walk over muddied sand to enter the white cube structure erected in the Tuileries garden. I chat to another journalist who has been attending for more than a decade. “Oh, this is all very weird,” he said. “It is too quiet. There are so few in-person shows … [Read more...] about In a pandemic, what does a COVID-19 edition of Paris Fashion Week look like?
AMILLY, France: Dutchman Cees Bol won the second stage of the Paris-Nice weeklong race at the end of a crash-marred 188-km route between Oinville-sur-Montcient and Amilly on Monday. After several riders were not able to contest the final sprint after being held up behind a late crash, Bol produced his effort with 50 metres to go and beat former world champion Mads Pedersen of Denmark and Australian Michael Matthews. Matthews, who picked up a time bonus in an intermediate sprint, took the overall leader's yellow jersey from first stage winner Sam Bennett. Bennett finished fifth. It was Bol's first victory since he prevailed in the Tour of Algarve's third stage over a year ago. New Zealander George Bennett's helmet was broke in two as he crashed heavily but the Jumbo-Visma rider was quickly back on his bike despite appearing slightly disoriented. He chatted briefly with the race's medical staff while on his bike as he tried to ride his way back into the peloton. … [Read more...] about Cycling: Bol wins chaotic sprint to take Paris-Nice stage two
November 15, 2007 09:01 "I wanted to let opinion leaders in France, a cultural power, know that cars and mobile phones are not the only things Korea has. I wanted to build the image of Korea, a 'soft power', where culture and cutting-edge technologies, tradition and modernity go hand in hand." Choi Jung-wha, a professor at the Graduate School of Interpretation and Translation of Hankuk University of Foreign Studies and a leading interpreter at international conferences, organized an event to build a new image of Korea in Paris on Tuesday evening. The Corea Image Communication Institute, an organization she chairs, hosted an event called CICI Korea 2007 at the Pavilion Gabriel near Concorde Square in the center of Paris. The audience cheered pianist Kim Sun-wook (19), the winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition, and the Korean non-verbal drama performance "Jump." CICI showed videos about Korea between performances. "We live in an era when any country that can … [Read more...] about Translator Conducts Cultural Diplomacy in Paris
