Soccer fans at Stade de France have observed a minute's silence one year after the Paris attacks.

Friday's poignant silence before the World Cup qualifier between France and Sweden remembered victims of the attacks on Nov. 13 last year, which saw 130 people killed and hundreds more injured.

The night of terror began when three suicide bombers blew themselves up outside the Stade de France, where France was playing Germany in a friendly match. One passerby was killed. At least one of the bombers tried to enter the stadium but was foiled by security guards.

Security measures were the same Friday as they have been since the attacks, with spectators patted down and their bags searched twice — once near to the stadium and the second time close to the entry gates.

The atmosphere was calm and relaxed.
