PARIS - One of the Paris cafes where drinkers died in a hail of bullets on Nov. 13 reopened on Friday, three weeks to the day after the Islamist militant attacks that killed 130 people.

"It's time to get together again, united, to move on and not forget," said a message on the menu-board at the cafe, A La Bonne Biere, where five people died.

Audrey Bily, manager of the first attacked cafe to reopen its doors, said the walls of the premises had been repainted and the "stigmata of this nightmare" removed.

Speaking in front of dozens of early-day clients and TV cameras, she said it was time to "bounce back".

The cafe is one of six where Friday night drinkers died when gunmen opened fire with AK-47 rifles as part of a multi-pronged attack involving gunmen and suicide bombers.
