FRANCE, Bayeux : People put pencils on the ground in the War reporters’ Memorial during a Unity rally “Marche Republicaine” on January 11, 2015 in Bayeux, northwestern France, in tribute to the 17 victims of the three-day killing spree. The killings began on January 7 with an assault on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris that saw two brothers killing 12 people including some of the country’s best-known cartoonists and the storming of a Jewish supermarket on the eastern fringes of the capital which killed 4 local residents. A march with world leaders is taking place on January 11 through Paris in a historic display of global defiance against extremism after Islamist attacks that killed 17 victims.
