Some victims' relatives are blaming French government

PARIS - Some relatives of victims of the Nov. 13 attacks that left 130 dead in Paris are criticizing the French government for not having done enough to prevent the attacks — and at least two say they will not attend Friday's national commemoration ceremony.

Emma Prevost, whose brother Francois-Xavier Prevost was killed, called for a boycott of the ceremony in a Facebook post.

She criticized authorities for not doing enough after other attacks around Paris in January left 17 people dead. She says "10 months later, the same people are able to restart and this time, cause 10 times more deaths."

Matthieu Mauduit, whose brother Cedric was killed in the Bataclan concert hall, said in a Facebook post he would not be attending the commemoration ceremony although he was not calling for a boycott. He says "I don't want to be a political 'trophy' exhibited by a government that did nothing for months, for years."
