French exchange students hold vigil in St. Louis

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com)  -- The Paris attacks hit close to home for a group of French exchange students visiting the St. Louis area.

On Saturday night, the students lit candles in honor of the victims of the attacks. The high school students are visiting St. Louis for ten days as part of a cultural exchange program.

“It was very scary back home,” one of the students said. “We didn’t have any news or anything.”

The students say they were very relieved to hear from friends and family back in France and to learn everyone is okay.
