Charlie Hedbo France Attack

Flowers of Mourning in France

The attack on the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which left 12 dead, triggered a wave of solidarity, with rallies in defence of free speech in more than 30 French cities and in global capitals. President François Hollande declared a day of national mourning on Thursday with flags at half-mast for three days, saying the country had been “struck at its very heart”. But he vowed: “Freedom will always be stronger than barbarism.”
