Thousands rally in France in support of terror attack victims

In Paris, crowds of people swarmed into the Place de la Republique that lies barely a kilometre (half a mile) from the scene of the bloodbath that has shocked France.

At least 20,000 people also gathered in the French cities of Lyon and Toulouse, police said, after 12 people were killed by heavily armed gunmen screaming “Allahu akbar” (God is greatest).

Demonstrators wore black stickers marked “Je suis Charlie” (I am Charlie),a slogan aimed at showing solidarity with the victims of the deadliest attack in France in decades.

Others waved banners with slogans such as “Press freedom has no price” and “Charb mort libre” (Charb died free), a reference to the newspaper’s slain editor-in-chief Stephane Charbonnier.

  1. And so it begins . . .
    People programmed to kill other people in the name of religion.
    It is a sad day when people can simply attack a newspaper in a major city in Europe and kill people for what they have written.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The sad thing is that people on both sides of the fence that are innocent of any kind of action will get thrown into this mess eventually.
    What paints one often paints all. And there are a lot of innocent people that do not believe in radical action out there that will be effected by this horrible thing that has happened. I offer my sincere condolences to those people victimized by this “religious” behavior.
