PARIS- Survivors of November's deadly Paris attacks have opened up to a French terrorism commission ahead of a highly charged concert in the French capital by Eagles of Death Metal - the U.S. rock band whose show in the Bataclan concert hall was among the attack targets.
Speaking to the parliamentary commission Monday, Bataclan survivor Alexis Lebrun questioned why there was scant security around one of Paris' biggest music venues, despite a high alert following attacks 10 months earlier on a satirical newspaper and kosher supermarket.
Eagles of Death Metal prepared for a tribute concert in another Paris venue today. Some Bataclan survivors will attend.
Speaking to i-Tele television, frontman Jesse Hughes broke down in tears, asking: "I don't know why God picked us to be the band."
