Negotiators from nearly 200 nations are still set to meet in Paris Nov. 30 for the launch of the United Nations-sponsored COP21 conference. French and U.N. officials confirmed this week the event would proceed as planned at Le Bourget, an exhibition center in the Parisian suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis where two suicide attacks and a bombing took place Friday night, killing three people.
