Hundreds of people are due to gather for a memorial service on Friday in honour of those killed in the Paris attacks two weeks ago.
The families of the 130 people killed in the French capital on November 13 have been invited to the ceremony at Les Invalides, where President François Hollande is expected to speak.
Republican guards will hold photos of each of the victims, who died in a series of attacks across the city, including at the Bataclan concert hall, outside the Stade de France and at restaurants and cafés.
President Hollande has called for citizens to drape their homes in the red, white and blue of the nation's flag for the ceremony.
Nearly 11,000 police are expected to be deployed for the event as the city remains on high alert.
Samy Amimour, who was born in Drancy, a north-eastern suburb of Paris, is believed to be the first Paris attacker to be buried.
