Nov 16 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher on Monday, recovering from losses over the weekend after Friday's deadly attacks in Paris that killed about 130 people.

* Global stocks held steady, with gains in the energy sector helping pare earlier losses in European shares.

* Crude prices were up on heightened geopolitical concerns, but gains were muted due to a global supply glut.

* The euro was at near 7-month lows against the dollar after the Paris attacks led to a bout of global risk aversion and kept investors cautious on the common currency.

* The attacks unfolded after markets closed in the United States on Friday.

* Earlier Friday, U.S. stocks logged their largest weekly losses since August on the back of weak economic data and following six weeks of gains on the S&P 500.

* The New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq said on Sunday they would observe a minute of silence at 9:25 a.m. (1425 GMT) on Monday to honor the victims of the attacks.   Continuación...
