Strasbourg Christmas Market Reopens to Lively Crowds

Residents and tourists alike returned to the Christmas Market in Strasbourg, France, after it was reopened by French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner on Friday, December 14, three days after a shooting attack.

On Friday afternoon, Castaner officially reopened the market for the first time since security forces cordoned the area during the attack on December 11.

The minister walked through the area thanking police officers.

Video taken on Friday evening showed a group of musicians playing lively tunes outside the Cathedral of Notre Dame while holiday revelers enjoyed the market’s lights and vin chaud.

Photos captured memorials placed on several streets in the quarter where victims of Tuesday’s attack were gunned down.

The attack at the market claimed the lives of four, according to the Associated Press.

Police say at least a dozen were injured.

The suspect, identified as 29-year old Cherif Chekatt, was killed in an exchange of gunfire with police in the Meinau quartier of Strasbourg on Thursday night.
