The French president, schoolchildren, bystanders have held a minute of silence to honor the 129 people killed in the country's worst attacks in decades.

President Francois Hollande stood in a crowd of students from Paris' Sorbonne university, some with their heads bowed, others looking up defiantly.

Crowds gathered at a makeshift monument at Republique Plaza in a neighborhood targeted by the attacks, where a banner reads "Can't Scare Us."

Schools and businesses across the country also held a moment of silence.
