PARIS (AP) - France’s justice minister says up to 300 million euros ($328 million) may be set aside for compensating victims of the Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris and their families.

In an interview with Le Parisien newspaper published Thursday, Christine Taubira says a special government fund for terrorism victims has already earmarked 6.7 million euros, as well as 771,000 euros for travel and hotels for families who came from afar to see injured loved ones or identify remains.

The attacks by Islamic terrorists on a concert hall, cafes and France’s main stadium killed 130 people and injured hundreds.

At least one victim’s father suggested suing the government for not ensuring security, especially after deadly attacks in January against satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket, where four Jews were killed, Hy”d.
