وتشهد
فرنسا سلسلة مسيرات في مدن عدة لإظهار الوحدة الوطنية وإدانة العنف،
وستكون هذه هي المرة الثانية فقط منذ عام 1945، التي يشارك فيها رئيس فرنسي
في تظاهرة عامة؛ حيث شارك الرئيس السابق فرانسوا ميتران في احتجاج ضد
العنصرية ومعاداة السامية عام 1990.

الفرنسية تحديد هوية الجناة عشية الهجوم؛ حيث سلم حميد مراد، أحد المتهمين،
نفسه للشرطة، ومازال البحث جاريا للإيقاع بالأخوين سعيد وشريف كواشي
المتهمين الآخرين بالهجوم.

شارك
حوالي 3.7 مليون شخص في المظاهرات المناهضة للإرهاب في مختلف أنحاء فرنسا
الأحد 11 يناير 2015) بحسب أرقام مؤقتة أعلنتها السلطات والمنظمون وجمعتها
الوكالة فرانس برس. وفي باريس تحدث المنظمون عن مشاركة 1.3 إلى 1.5 مليون
شخص في "مسيرة الجمهورية"، التي شارك فيه قادة وممثلون عن خمسين دولة، فيما أشارت وزارة الداخلية إلى تعبئة "غير مسبوقة" يصعب تقدير عدد المشاركين فيها.



وأعلنت
وزارة الداخلية الفرنسية أن ما لا يقل عن 3.7 مليون شخص شاركوا في فرنسا
في مسيرات نددت بالاعتداءات الدامية التي ضربت البلاد خلال الأيام الأخيرة،
وهو رقم يعتبر الأكبر في تاريخ فرنسا بالنسبة لأي تجمع. وشارك حوالي
مليوني شخص في التجمعات خارج باريس.



 "معاً ضد الكراهية"

كما
شهدت العديد من مدن العالم الأحد مظاهرات تضامنا مع فرنسا بعد الهجمات
الدامية التي شهدتها في الأيام الماضية تزامناً مع المظاهرة الحاشدة التي
جرت في باريس، ففي بروكسل تجمع نحو 20 ألف شخص تحت شعار "معاً ضد الكراهية" في مسيرة بوسط العاصمة البلجيكية خلف لافتة كبيرة كتب عليها بالانجليزية "حرية التعبير". وجرت المظاهرة بمشاركة شخصيات سياسية ووسائل إعلام وكذلك العديد من أعضاء وممثلي الجالية الفرنسية في بلجيكا.

"I am not Charlie": Cracks in the unity after Paris attacks

بالفيديو والصور.. مليون مشارك في مسيرات باريس للتضامن مع ضحايا إيبدو

A
placard with a news cartoon by French cartoonist Plantu is seen placed
amongst other tributes on the statues at the Place de la Republique in
Paris, January 10, 2015, after an attack on the offices of French
satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo earlier this week

بالفيديو والصور.. مليون مشارك في مسيرات باريس للتضامن مع ضحايا إيبدو

The
world outpouring of sympathy after the deadly "Charlie Hebdo" attack
has touched many in France but some either detect a note of hypocrisy or
feel squeamish about supporting a satirical weekly that antagonised
many.

بالفيديو والصور.. مليون مشارك في مسيرات باريس للتضامن مع ضحايا إيبدو

President
Francois Hollande's government insists freedom of expression must not
be curtailed out of fear of further attacks, and authorities have got
fully behind a spontaneous "Je suis Charlie" ("I am Charlie") social
media campaign of solidarity.

بالفيديو والصور.. مليون مشارك في مسيرات باريس للتضامن مع ضحايا إيبدو

But
scepticism has emerged on the one hand from surviving Charlie Hebdo
workers who reject some of the support for them as insincere; from
others who found the weekly plain offensive; and others who question the
human rights records of the 40-plus world leaders taking part in
Sunday's unity march in Paris.

"There
are so many big words being said about freedom of expression and
democracy. But where was the support (for it) before? There wasn't that
much proof," 26-year-old math student Nalo Magalhou said of some of the
political and media reaction.

While far less popular than #JeSuisCharlie ("#IamCharlie"), the #IamNotCharlie hashtag has also appeared on Twitter.

بالفيديو والصور.. مليون مشارك في مسيرات باريس للتضامن مع ضحايا إيبدو

To
be sure, there is a fringe minority on the Internet who have praised
the attacks that killed 17 in three separate attacks over three days and
culminated in the siege of a kosher deli in eastern Paris.

But
more significant is the body of people who say that while they outright
condemn the attacks, they still cannot bring themselves to support a
newspaper that mocked religions.

"It would be too easy (to say) I am Charlie," Belgian blogger Marcel Sel wrote on his website.

Horrified
by the attacks he unreservedly condemns, he said it would be "cowardly"
to pretend he is "Charlie" while he had harshly criticised some of its
cartoons on Islam in the past.

Zakaria
Moumni, a 34-year-old Franco-Moroccan draped in the French flag at the
Place de la Republique rally point for Sunday's march has a very
different reason to think there are cracks in the facade of unity.

بالفيديو والصور.. مليون مشارك في مسيرات باريس للتضامن مع ضحايا إيبدو

"Some
heads of state and government simply should not be there when they
crack down on freedom of expression in their own country. It's
hypocritical," said the former Thai box champion, who says he had been
tortured in Morocco and had received support from NGOs such as Human
Rights Watch when jailed there.

Morocco has rejected accusations of torture and last March filed a legal complaint in France against them.



For veteran Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Bernard Holtrop, the problem is with some of the paper's new "friends."

Holtrop,
famous in France under the name of Willem, said he was happy if people
worldwide marched to defend freedom of speech. But asked about support
from Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders, he said: "We vomit on all
those people who are suddenly saying they are our friends."

"We've
got a lot of new friends - the pope, Queen Elizabeth, Putin. I've got
to laugh about that," he said. Willem says he is alive only because he
does not like going to weekly staff meetings and was not in the Paris
office when two gunman erupted and killed his colleagues and two
policemen.



Organisers
say up to 1.6m attended the march as well as more than 40 world leaders
including British Prime Minister, David Cameron, as well as Angela
Merkel, the German chancellor, and others

21.00 And that
concludes our coverage of today's demonstrations in Paris, a day of
solidarity with the victims of the terrorist attacks and a day of
remembrance. In all, up to 1.6 million people gathered at the rally in
Paris - 3.7 million at events across the country - making them the
biggest in French history.

Benjamin Netanyahu's message to French Jews, that they have a home
waiting for them in Israel, and his government's plan to help step up
immigration from France, have been criticised as insensitive. Allison
Kaplan Sommer, writing on the Haaretz website, says that it is too soon
after the attack on the kosher grocery store to be making such
statements.

Opinion But there's a right and a wrong way to go
about it, and Israel's unsubtle ham-handedness is clearly the latter.
Statements like Netanyahu's sends a message that Israeli government, in a
perverse "I told you so" manner is glad that Jews abroad are threatened
because it strengthens their raison dメetre.



20.20
Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, is speaking at the
Grand Synagogue in Paris. He has thanked Lassana Bathily, the Muslim
employee of a Jewish supermarket who saved several hostages on Friday,
and said he appreciated the "very firm position" taken by French leaders
against "the new anti-Semitism and terrorism" in France.

Quote Our common enemy is radical, extremist Islam - not normal Islam.



20.10
And here is the line-up of world leaders, arms linked in a show of
solidarity. That's Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta, the president of Mali, in a
central position next to Francois Hollande. And it would be wrong - at
an event like this - to draw conclusions about David Cameron's
peripheral placement. But you don't need to look too closely to see
Benjamin Netanyahu's security detail. 



19.59
A lot of anger and confusion in the US and beyond about why John Kerry
or a similarly high-ranking figure is not in Paris. Barack Obama has
sent Eric Holder, the attorney general, who may not be well known in
Europe but is actually very close to the American president, to attend
the security summit. So it's odd that - according to the US Embassy in
Paris - he has not attended the march. The US is instead represented by
its ambassador. 



 18.36
Street protests in France often end in violence, with the CRS riot
police battling hard core elements that loiter after the peaceful
protesters head home.

But, says Rory Mulholland, on Sunday's
giant unity march in Paris, the crowd applauded and shouted "bravo" and
"merci" as police trucks began to pull out of Place de la République as
the demo wound down.

Earlier, as the marchers proceeded towards
Place de la Nation, many said a policeman positioned on a rooftop was
spotted by the crowd and treated to several minutes of applause. He
finally acknowledged the tribute with a thumbs-up. 



 18.30
Western intelligence agencies have reportedly intercepted
communications from Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) which
indicate that the attack on Charlie Hebdo is the start of a campaign of
attacks in Europe, Justin Huggler writes.



Quote
The US National Security Agency (NSA) intercepted the messages from
Isil members shortly after the Paris attacks, according to a report in
Germany’s Bild am Sonntag newspaper. The messages also referred to Rome,
the newspaper reported, but no concrete plans are known.

View image on Twitter

In
the same report, Bild claimed that MI5 has warned Britain’s European
partners of possible attacks on aircraft using explosives that cannot be
detected by airport security.

Western intelligence agencies are
concerned that the Paris gunmen may be part of a larger network, the
newspaper reported, adding that the US has preliminary evidence that the
brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi had contacts in the Netherlands.



In
German intelligence circles, it is assumed that the Paris gunmen had
contact with other militants, but there is no evidence whether the
attacks were ordered by a particular organisation, Bild reported.

The NSA succeeded in breaking a code used by Isil in its communications some months ago, the newspaper said.

18.26
Morocco's foreign minister, Salaheddine Mezouar, snubbed the mammoth
march against extremism through Paris on Sunday due to the presence of
"blasphemous cartoons depicting the Prophet", the ministry said, AFP
reports.

He nevertheless went to the Elysée Palace to present the
country's "sincere condolences to the French president and to the
French government following the despicable attacks in France this week".



18.21 Benjamin Netanyahu and François Hollande enter to ovations at Grand Synagogue in Paris

18.07
AFP now reporting at least 3.3 million march against extremism in
France. It's believed up to 1.5m marched in Paris alone, and many
thousands more across the world including in Montreal where 25,000
showed their solidarity with France.

The day began with crowds
gathering and Ahmed Merabet's memorial service. Mr Merabet had been the
French Muslim police officer killed in the Charlie Hebdo attack. His
brother thanked everyone for turning out to rallies and said "it meant a
lot to us". 



 17.48 According to French officials, this rally is the largest demonstration in French history.

17.36 The march is coming to an end as thousands rally together at Place de la Nation

17.30
The massive turnout is, according to French TV, unlike the country has
seen since the 1944 Liberation of Paris from Nazi occupation, AFP
writes.



17.14
Police in Belgium have reportedly arrested a man suspected of making a
bomb threat against Le Soir newspaper today, writes Harriet Alexander.

Le
Soir names him as Thierry Carreyn, a 53-year-old who in 1999 blew up a
phone box outside the offices of Vlaams Blok - the far Right Belgian
political party, now called Vlaams Belang.

17.06 The crowd was so
dense in Place de la République that it took nearly an hour for its to
start moving out of the square after the official start of the march,
reports Rory Mulholland from Paris.



Quote
As the hundreds of thousands of marchers proceeded at a snail's pace
towards Place de la Nation, there were frequent renditions of the
Marseillaise national anthem, interspersed with chants of "Liberté,
Liberté". Many marchers carried giant pencils in a tribute to the
cartoonists killed in the attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine.

Countless
others sported banners with the Je Suis Charlie slogan that has become
the rallying cry for the millions of French who condemn what they see as
an attack on freedom of speech.

People who lived along the route of the demonstration hung out of their windows to shout support. 



Mohammad
Al Qadi, a Palestinian from the West Bank who is training to be a chef
in France, said he had come to show that he too wanted to defend free
speech and democracy.

But he said he feared there might be a backlash against his fellow Muslims.

"Muslims
living in France feel worried because it's dangerous for us. There were
attacks on mosques after the (Charlie Hebdo) attacks," said Al Qadi,
who was carrying a Palestinian flag. "I hope that French people will
understand that Muslims are also French before they are Muslims."

16.56 Reporters without Borders has condemned the presence of some of the leaders at today's march.

"On
what grounds are representatives of regimes that are predators of press
freedom coming to Paris to pay tribute to Charlie Hebdo, a publication
that has always defended the most radical concept of freedom of
expression?



"Reporters
Without Borders is appalled by the presence of leaders from countries
where journalists and bloggers are systematically persecuted such as
Egypt (which is ranked 159th out of 180 countries in RWB’s press freedom
index), Russia (148th), Turkey (154th) and United Arab Emirates
(118th)."

"We
remember what the city went through and how we reacted: we came
together, we didn't allow the terrorists to divide and sow the seeds of
mistrust."

 16.33 The turnout in Paris alone is more than was
predicted. According to AFP, one organiser says an estimated 1.5m people
are in the centre for the march and AFP themselves say their tally of
official tolls mean more than a million people rallied against terrorism
outside Paris.



In Vienna, organisers say more than 10,000 people rallied in the Austrian capital.

with the victims' families standing together during this tragic period.

Quote
Everyone is very clear why they are here - to defend the right to
freedom of expression, including freedom of religious expression.

Everyone feels the same outrage at this week's events, but I've yet to find on person who thinks that Islam alone is the cause.

They
cite everything from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the failure of
successive governments in France and the UK to integrate its immigrant
communities effectively.

But there is also anger that Islamist
fanatics have been allowed to dictate the terms of public discourse long
before the tragic events of last week. 

View image on Twitter

 Many
of those I've spoken to also questioned whether politicians are the
right people to bridge the divide, and they had little faith in the
political process to heal division.

That was particularly true of
many French people, who said they feared the events at Charlie Hebdo
and the kosher supermarket siege would serve to bolster support for
Marine Le Pen's Front National.

Emmanuelle Bigot, 39, from Paris,
came with friend Emmannuelle Recoules, 40, "because we have to stand up
for free speech, and speak out against hate".

Both women live in London, and said it was important to let the extremists know they were not winning.

Overall the message people seem to want to convey is peace and tolerance, but there is genuine anger at what has happened.

The caller said that he had had enough of the coverage of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, which "fuels the extreme Right."

The caller is thought to have been identified, but police in Belgium are confirming this.



 The offices were evacutated, and the journalists are waiting to be allowed back inside.

in memory of the victims, writes Harriet Alexander.



Ahmed
Merabet, 42, was the first officer on the scene of Wednesday's attack,
carried out by al Qaeda brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi. The brothers
shot Mr Merabet as he approached, and then fired at him point blank as
he lay on the pavement.

On Sunday morning thousands of people
gathered in the suburb of Livry-Gargan to the north east of Paris,
standing in front of the town hall.



Mr
Merabet grew up in the suburb, attending the Andre-Boulloche lycee, as
one of five children of Algerian immigrant parents. He ran a cleaning
company before joining the police force eight years ago, and worked hard
for a promotion.

The Qatari
Sheikh Mohammed Ben Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani is attending as well as
Bahrain's foreign minister Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmed Al Khalifa and prince
Abdullah Bin Hamad al-Khalifa.



15.10
Some on Twitter are pointing out the hypocrisy of certain world leaders
who don't have the best track record on free expression attending the
Paris rally. For example, Turkey's PM Ahmet Davutoglu and ministers from
Bahrain and Egypt.



Only recently Turkey was criticised for the arrests of scriptwriters and Zaman editor-in-chief, Ekrem Dumanli 



14.59
Here in London, as aforementioned, there is a solidarity march in
Trafalgar Square. The Telegraph's Luke Heighton is there where the
square - not as crowded as France - is pretty full with people..



14.50 Lazio, who are playing against Roma, have Je Suis Charlie written on their T-shirts.

Hundreds of Israelis attended a rally at Jerusalem city hall on Sunday
to express solidarity with the victims of last week's attacks, writes
Robert Tait.



Many
held up Je Suis Charlie placards while others displayed alternative
signs in French reading "I am a Jew of France." A small number held up
similar signs in Hebrew. The rally, organised by Jerusalem City Council,
was addressed by Nir Barkat, the city's mayor, and Rabbi Shlomo Moshe
Amar, its chief rabbi. 



 It
came as Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister - attending a
mass rally in Paris along with Avigdor Lieberman, the foreign minister,
and Naftali Bennett, the industry minister - announced that French Jews
wishing to emigrate to Israel would be "welcomed with open arms".

Later
his office announced that he had accepted the requests of the families
of four French Jews killed by a jihadist during last Friday's siege of a
Kosher supermarket to be buried in Israel. The funerals are expected to
take place in Jerusalem on Tuesday.

Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Authority leader, also came to Paris.

14.42 The US attorney general has said there is no "credible information" al-Qaeda was behind the Paris attacks.



"At
this point, we don't have any credible information that would allow us
to make a determination as to which organisation was responsible," Eric
Holder said in an interview from Paris with ABC's "This Week."

14.38
In an interview ahead of the march (which you can watch in the video
above), Mr Cameron disclosed that he will meet security and intelligence
chiefs on Monday to discuss how to respond to the terrorist attacks in
France, writes Steven Swinford.

Quote He said: "We are here to
demonstrate that we all stand for the values of democracy, freedom,
freedom of expression and tolerance.

"We in Britain face a very similar threat - a threat of fanatical extremism - and we have to confront that in every way we can.



"That means maintaining strong security, investing in our security services, it means being very vigilant.

"But
it also means confronting the poisonous narrative of Islamist extremism
wherever we find it. Whether in universities or schools or our prisons
or throughout our society, we'll only defeat this threat if we use all
of the means at our disposal to confront and defeat it."

He
added: "If we make sure we have strong security, confront the poisonous
ideology of Islamist extremism, we make sure we all play our part then I
believe we can defeat it, because in the end the values that we stand
for - of democracy, freedom of speech, of tolerance - these are not
values that make us weak, they are values that make our societies, our
economies, our countries, they're values that make us strong."



14.34
Masses of people are out in force and not just in France. More than
10,000 people marched through the Belgian capital Brussels on Sunday in
solidarity with the huge rally in Paris, a police source said.

Police
had counted "between 10,000 and 15,000" about half an hour after the
start of the march, the source told AFP. A huge "Brussels is Charlie"
banner in French, Flemish and English was hanging in the city centre.

14.31
Many of the leaders are arm in arm, showing solidarity on this
important day. The families of the 17 victims are also marching in
memory of their lost loved ones, killed during a three-day siege.

14.29 And the leaders are moving.



14.28 The leaders are together and should soon be on the move.

14.23
Francois Hollande, Italian PM Matteo Renzi, Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy,
German chancellor Angela Merkel, British PM David Cameron, Turkey's PM
Ahmet Davutoglu among other world leaders are preparing to march



Crowds
gather in Paris' Palace de la Republique for the Unity rally in
remembrance and defiance of the recent terrorist attacks in and around

14.17 Loud applause from the crowd in Paris but solidarity for the nation of Voltaire is wide as Ruth Sherlock tweeted:

14.13
The EU culture ministers have released this statement defending freedom
of expression and vowing to protect creativity, AFP reports.



"We,
the ministers of culture of the European Union, stand in solidarity to
defend the freedom of expression and vow to protect the rights of
artists to create freely," said the statement, issued by the current
Latvian presidency of the EU.

The ministers said they "do not
accept terrorists' attempts to impose their own standards. Since time
immemorial, the arts have been an inspiration for reflection giving rise
to new ideas and fighting against intolerance and ignorance."
 

14.08
At the Republique Square, spontaneous applause appears to have broken
out, according to the BBC. The march will go down the Boulevard Voltaire
to the Place de la Nation and will be led by the families who lost
their loved ones during the tragic events in Paris earlier this week.

Rory
Mulholland says they will then be followed by the leaders with the
unified French public behind them - a mix of athiests, Muslims, Jews and
more, Mishal Hussain on BBC reports.

14.05 There are leaders
from more than 40 countries including Israel, Italy and Spain. But
they're definitely not alone as this image shows the sheer numbers. The
march is called the March of Unity and for those on Twitter, the hashtag
appears to be #unitymarch

14.00 There are solidarity marches across the world including in Trafalgar Square, BBC News reports



14.00
The four killed by jihadist Amedy Coulibaly in a hostage drama at a
kosher supermarket in Paris will be buried in Israel on Tuesday, a
community spokesman told AFP on Sunday.

"The four families
decided to bury their dead in Israel. The funerals will be held on
Tuesday at 10.00 am in the Mount of Olives cemetery" in Jerusalem, the
source said.



13.58
David Cameron said the extremist threat will "be with us for many more
years to come" as he met with other world leaders and the French
president to join the march.

13.56 The leaders are on the move, they left the Elysée Palace and are on their way to join the march.

13.54 The entire crowd is clapping and chanting, "Charlie Charlie", says Rory Mulholland

13.53
We've got pictures of the French president welcoming world leaders. Mr
Hollande (R) welcomes United Arab Emirates foreign minister Abdullah bin
Zayed al-Nahyan (L) at the Elysée Palace in the image below.



13.51
"I've lived in Paris for 14 years and have never seen any demo on this
scale before. The avenues leading to the Republique, a square bigger
than Trafalgar Square, are jammed with people as far as the eye can see
with people trying to get on to the square. So many that no one is
moving any more," adds Rory Mulholland.

13.48 Philippe Odiau,
caretaker of a building on the 20th arrondissement of Paris, told Rory
Mulholland he was here "because simply to show we are here to fight
against barbarity.

"The French republic is still on its feet. But
above all I came here above all for the memory of Franck Brinsolaro, a
bodyguard at Charlie Hebdo, killed during Wednesday's attack.



"He was a friend of mine and he lived in my building - it was 48 hours before we realised it was him."

13.45 Rory Mulholland has this short dispatch from the scene at Republique Square:

Quote
The march will be taking two different routes as it is thick with
people and difficult to move. The avenues leading to the square from all
directions are absolutely throng with people and some people will not
be able to reach the square.



The
tricolour flag and Je Suis Charlie posters can be seen everywhere - and
it's just started to rain. There are occasional bursts of the national
anthem but there is a quiet and subdued atmosphere.

There are people climbing the statue of Mariane, the symbol of the republic - some are even hanging off the edge.

One
man, dressed a green statue of liberty costume, is using a pencil
instead of the torch. Vincent Renau, a banker from Paris, told me why he
came here because "there's been a terrible attack on the freedom of
expression and on the French republic".

On the issue of whether he was afraid, he said he was a little. "But I'm here to say yes to life. We must carry on."



13.19
The British, German and Israeli leaders were also joined by Russian
foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and Turkish prime minister, Ahmet
Davutoglu, all of whom will march through the French capital in the same
demonstration - a world first, AFP points out.

13.09 David Cameron, Angela Merkel and Benjamin Netanyahu have arrived at the French presidency

12.59
News is breaking that the US will host a summit next month on the
extremism challenge and how to fight "violent extremism around the
world".



The meeting is likely to take place in Washington DC, the US attorney-general, Eric Holder, said.

12.54 Crowds continue to gather and Valerie Trierweiler appears to also be in the crowds.

BBC
News was reporting that there could be more than a million people today
at the march which will take place in just over an hour, but some
estimates suggest it will be 700,000.



There
is a heavy armed presence as you can see from this image of French
soldiers on patrol around the Place de Nation in Paris, another big site
in the march. The map below shows the march's intended route:



12.44
BREAKING Associated Press has more information about the shooting of a
jogger in a Paris suburb on the same day as the Charlie Hebdo massacre,
which has been linked to the gunman who killed a policewoman and four
hostages at a kosher grocery, a prosecutor said on Sunday.

In a
brief statement, the prosecutor said ballistics tests on shell cases
from the shooting on Wednesday in Fontenay aux Roses linked them to the
automatic weapon used by Amedy Coulibaly at the kosher store stormed two
days later. The prosecutor said the jogger was seriously wounded.

12.43
From that meeting between interior ministers, they said there was an
"urgent and crucial need" to share European air passenger information
and strengthen the EU's external borders



12.32
BREAKING The French prosecutor has confirmed Amedy Coulibaly is linked
to the shooting of a jogger, causing the individual to sustain critical
injuries.

12.28 Louisa Loveluck points out that officials have
been sent to Paris from both Egypt and Turkey, both among the biggest
jailers of journalists in the world.

12.26 Tim Chester, Deputy
Editor of Mashable UK, has shared this Vine via Twitter showing the
crowds gathered at Place de la République two hours before the march.

12.21
Spain's interior minister, Jorge Fernandez Diaz, earlier said he
intended to call for changes to the Schengen treaty allowing border
controls. His proposal for change was in order to limit the movements of
Islamic fighters returning to Europe from the Middle East, AFP reports.

"We
are going to back border controls and it is possible that as a
consequence it will be necessary to modify the Schengen treaty," he told
the daily El Pais ahead of a ministerial meeting on the subject in
Paris.



12.16 A circle of pens laid in tribute to victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre has emerged in Trafalgar Square

12.10
To give you some idea of the scale of the security operation around the
march in Paris today, a total of 5,500 police, gendarmes and soldiers
are being deployed across the capital, Harriet Alexander writes.



Just
to protect the president and 40-odd other heads of state and world
leaders - among them Benjamin Netanyahu, Angela Merkel, David Cameron,
King Abdullah and Queen Rania of Jordan - will be 150 police, on 56
motorbikes.

For the main march, 2,200 men and women will be
deployed for protection - including 20 teams of officers to detect
high-risk individuals.

Snipers will be placed on rooftops along the route.

Two
thousand officers and 1,350 soldiers will protect other sites across
Paris - transport hubs, tourist sites, media offices, religious schools
and public buildings.

"There is not one country who did not wish to be beside France... I
would like to say, with great gratitude, from the depth of my heart,
from the French government and people, to thank the ministers for their
solidarity, [and] their boundless friendship," Mr Cazeneuve added.

"I
want to tell them from the depth of my heart, I will not forget the way
that they have been beside us. Thank you very much for being here."

12.02
Strong words from Mr Hollande: "The entire country will rise up," he
told ministers, according to his entourage, reports AFP.

12.01
Earlier today, Mr Cazeneuve welcomed the Home Secretary, Theresa May,
before the start of an international meeting aimed at fighting terrorism



11.57 "We have shared information about these foreign fighters and these networks. We have decided to reinforce our cooperation.

"To improve the efficiency of our fight against terrorism in all its form, [we must do so]" Mr Cazeneuve adds.

11.55 "We are determined to struggle together against them and we have," Mr Cazeneuve says



11.53
Bernard Cazeneuve, the French interior minister, is with his European
counterparts and speaking in Paris at the Elysée Palace.

11.39
Liam Fox is also on Sky's Murnaghan, and earlier today we published a
piece by the former Defence Secretary, urging for more access to be
given to security services to protect the UK and better funding for MI6,
MI5 and GCHQ.

Opinion The spending priorities of any government
are usually a reflection of the values of the population it serves. If
that is so, then we have to question the priorities of our country. At a
time when we face growing and sustained terrorist threats, we spend
more on the heating allowance for the elderly in a year than we do on
the combined budgets of our security services – GCHQ, MI6 and MI5.



[O]ur security services need to be given access to the data they require to help to keep us safe.

When
Snowden took data to China and Russia, some 58,000 files came from
GCHQ, information that had played a vital role in preventing terrorism
in Britain over the past decade.

It was not freedom-fighting – we
should call treason by its name and those who assisted Snowden must be
held responsible for their actions.

11.28 Turks have tracked Boumeddiene's phone to a Turkish border town on Jan 8, but it has since gone quiet, writes Ben Farmer



Turkish
counter-terrorism officials have told the Financial Times they believe
that Hayat Boumeddiene may now have passed into Syria and could be in
territory held by the Islamic state of Iraq and the Levant, known as
Isil or Isis.

The fugitive is believed to have arrived in
Istanbul from Paris via Madrid on January 2. CCTV images from Istanbul
airport appear to confirm her presence, Turkish officials say.

A
signal from her phone was then traced on January 8 to the Turkish border
town of Akcakale, which is next to Isil territory in Syria. The town is
known to harbour Isil sympathisers and the porous border is easy to
cross. Her phone signal has not been traced since.



The
French authorities only passed on Boumeddiene’s name to Istanbul on
January 9. Turkish officials say there is no evidence any of the other
attackers passed through Turkey.

11.25 Le Monde says there are
rumours the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu may go to Jewish
supermarket but it must stressed, there is no confirmation from Israeli
embassy in Paris.

11.18 More from Rory Mulholland about the Charles de Gaulle news mentioned earlier.



An
airport spokesman told the Telegraph that there was no terror threat at
Charles de Gaulle and that the heavy police presence was due to the
arrival in Paris of foreign heads of state to attend the march to
commemorate the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

Le Monde is reporting that Terminal A at Charles de Gaulle airport has
been shut down and that armed police officers are on the roof of the
building, Rory Mulholland says

10.58 The New York Times reports
on Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu's, comments as he was
leaving Israel to head to Paris.

As he left, Mr Netanyahu invited
French Jews to move to Israel and said he would attend a second rally
of the French Jewish community.



Quote
I am going to Paris in order to participate in the rally, along with
world leaders, for a renewed struggle against the Islamic terrorism that
is threatening all of humanity, which I have been calling for years/

“I will say there that any Jew who wants to immigrate to Israel will be received here with open arms."

10.50
Ahead of the rally this afternoon, security ministers for the EU,
including Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, Denmark, and Sweden - and
America held a meeting at France's interior ministry to work a out a
joint response to the terror threat.



US Attorney General Eric Holder was also present.

10.42
Sajid Javid, the Culture Secretary, is on Sky News and said parliament
needs to "make sure laws looking at communications and security services
are up-to-date". It needs to be updated for "online communication," he
urged.

On the issue of Islam and terrorism, Mr Javid said: "It's
no good for people to say they're not Muslims - it's what they call
themselves.

He later added: "They try to take what is a good religion and warp it for their own means."

He
also said: "Freedom of speech is vital to any democratic society. What a
newspaper, TV channel does, it's up to them, nothing to do with the
government.



"People can object but it's not for any government to tell any organisation what to do."

10.32
A funeral service for Ahmed Merabet, the French Muslim police officer,
killed during the Charlie Hebdo attack on Wednesday along with 11
others, has been held.

On Wednesday, footage released after the
attack showed the officer lying wounded on the pavement. As the gunmen
moved closer, they asked the 42-year-old: "Do you want to kill us?"

10.21 More from Martin Evans in Dammartin-en-Groele:

This
is the scene in Dammartin-en-Groele where tens of thousands of people
have turned out for a unity rally. It seems like the whole town are
here. They are singing La Marseillaise and chanting "Je Suis Charlie".



10.18
It's not just in Paris where people gather to remember and honour the
victims. In this photo, members of Sydney's French community gather in
the heart of the city to pay tribute to the Paris jihadist attack
victims holding sheets of paper with the words: "Freedom" and "Je Suis
Charlie".



10.17
The terrorists behind the Charlies Hebdo attacks have offended the
values of Islam "more than the cartoons ever did", Britain's first
Muslim cabinet minister said, writes Steven Swinford.

Baroness
Warsi, the former foreign minister, said that her faith has been "hugely
damaged" by the "brutal slaughter in Paris", which she said has
"rightly been portrayed as an attack on free speech".

She said
that while she personally finds cartoons satirising her religion
offensive and "unsavoury", freedom of expression is more important.



In
an article for The Sun on Sunday she said: "I cannot say I understand
why a satirical magazine could drive anyone to mass murder. As a person
of faith and as a Muslim, I know the values and reputation of my faith –
any faith – cannot be diminished by a cartoon.

10.10 After
meeting with the French president, François Hollande, Roger Cukierman,
president of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in
France, said Jewish schools and synagogues would be protected by the
French army "if necessary".

"He told us that all the schools, all the synagogues will be protected, if necessary, on top of the police, by the army," said.

Mr Hollande will also visit the Grand Synagogue of Paris after the march, Mr Cukierman said.

09.56 Paris supermarket siege witness: ’It was like the end of the world’

Trapped
in his flat inside the police cordon, witness Ian Ayres watched the
deadly end to the Paris supermarket siege, he tells Alastair Good.

09.49
A video has emerged online showing Paris supermarket killer Amedy
Coulibaly pledging allegiance to Isil, reports Henry Samuel.

The Senegalese-born Frenchman justifies his actions in footage filmed some time before this week's atrocity.

Coulibaly was shot dead by police on Friday after holding a dozen people hostage in a Kosher supermarket.



During
the hostage siege, he killed four people named by the French Board of
Jewish Deputies as Yoav Hattab, Philippe Braham, Yohan Cohen and
Francois-Michel Saada.

French police have launched in an
intensive search for Coulibaly's wife Hayat Boumeddiene, describing her
as "armed and dangerous".

09.40 The 17 victims from the Paris
terror attacks: (Top row) Charb, Georges Wolinski, Jean Cabut (aka
Cabu), Bernard Maris and Tignous (middle row) Elsa Cayat, Frederic
Boisseau, Ahmed Merabet, Franck Brinsolaro, Philippe Honore aka Honore
and Mustapha Ourrad (bottom row) Yohan Cohen, Yoav Hattab, Philippe
Braham, Francois Saada, Michel Renaud and Clarissa Jean-Philippe.



09.37 More details have emerged of Philippe Braham one of the four victims killed in the Jewish supermarket, reports Ben Farmer.



The father of four worked was a computer engineer who had worked as an insurance agent close to the supermarket.

Philippe
Braham was a father of four, with one child was from his first marriage
and three from his second marriage to Valerie, his brother-in-law, Shai
Ben David told the Israeli news site, Ynet.

The couple had suffered another family tragedy three years ago with the death of their first son.

"This was an incomprehensible tragedy for my sister. She survived only thanks to his strength," Mr Ben-David said.

Mr
Braham was described as an observant Jew who attended the synagogue in
Montrouge, a Parisian suburb. His brother is the rabbi of the synagogue
in Pantin, another suburb of Paris.



Mr
Braham had dreamed of moving to Israel. "He loved Israel. He buried his
parents and son here. He was an observant man who never harmed anyone.
He visited Israel many times, the last time was several months ago to
bury his mother," Mr Ben-David said.

Refael Braham, Philippe's 14-year-old son from his first marriage, was in Israel when he learned of his father's death.

"He
was very close to his father and took it really hard," the head of the
French aliyah project in the Netanya municipality told Ynet. "He has
been crying and refusing to believe he lost his father."



Refael
said: "Dad went to the supermarket to shop for Shabbat. When I was with
him (in France), we'd go shopping together quite often. If I hadn't
made aliyah to Israel, I might have gone with him this time as well and
gotten hurt."

09.18 BBC reports that as a tribute to those killed
in the attacks, London landmarks such as Tower Bridge, Trafalgar
Square, and the National Gallery with be lit in blue, white and red -
the colours of the French flag.



09.14
French police launched in an intensive search for Hayat Boumeddiene,
the 26-year-old partner of one of the attackers, describing her as
"armed and dangerous".

She is the wife of Amedy Coulibaly,
responsible for the attack on the Kosher supermarket. During the hostage
siege, he killed four people named by the French Board of Jewish
Deputies as Yoav Hattab, Philippe Braham, Yohan Cohen and
Francois-Michel Saada.



A
source familiar with the situation said Boumeddiene left France last
week and travelled to Syria via Turkey. A senior Turkish official
corroborated that account, saying she passed through Istanbul on Jan. 2.

A
senior Turkish security official said Paris and Ankara were now
cooperating in trying to trace her but that she had arrived in Istanbul
without any warning from France.



"We
think she is in Syria at the moment but we do not have any evidence
about that. She is most probably not in Turkey," the Turkish source said

09.02
When François Hollande joins the mass "unity march" today in Paris, it
will be only the second time since World War II that a French head of
state has joined a street protest, reports Rory Mulholland.



The
last time was when president François Mitterrand, a Socialist like Mr
Hollande, discreetly slipped into the crowd at a rally in May 1990.

That demo was against racism and anti-Semitism.



08.58
In an unprecedented show of unity, the leaders of Israel and the
Palestinian Authority will both attend the rally to honour the victims
of three days of bloodshed, AFP reports.

Along with Israel's
Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, the king and
queen of Jordan will be present at the rally.



08.57
The US secretary of state, John Kerry, vowed that no act of terror
would halt "the march of freedom" as he expressed solidarity with the
people of France after last week's Islamist attacks, AFP reports. Mr
Kerry is currently in India.

"We stand together this morning with
the people of France. We stand together not just in anger and outrage
but in solidarity and commitment in confronting extremists.



"No act of terror will ever stop the march of freedom."

08.46
Israeli and French media report the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin
Netanyahu, foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman and economy minister
Naftali Bennett will attend today's rally.

08.37 Reuters reports
on an arson attack on the German newspaper, Hamburger Morgenpost. The
paper, like many others in the country, printed the cartoons from
Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine which was subject to a deadly
attack in which 12 people were killed.



A
police spokesman said that an incendiary device was thrown at the
newspaper building in the night and documents were burned inside. Two
suspects were arrested near the crime scene because they behaved in an
unusual manner, she added.

The newspaper said on its web page
that there were no people inside the building when the attack happened.
Whether the arson attack was connected to the Charlie Hebdo cartoons was
still under investigation, the paper added.



08.34
The march doesn't begin in Place de la Republique until 3pm, but
already people are milling around in the grand square at the heart of
Paris, reports Harriet Alexander.



Groups
of people are wandering around reading all the signs and looking at the
mosaics created on the ground out of pens and candles. Some artistic
souls have even stretched cling film between two lamp posts and drawn a
series of tribute cartoons on the plastic.

Three women have brought along the French tricolour flag, and are wandering around waving it slowly.

Some of France's most celebrated artists and celebrities also lend
their support to today's huge gathering, reports Patrick Sawer.



They

that we don't surrender. Our freedom to think, to express ourselves and
to laugh are our greatest resources and they are in danger."

Le

religious opinion backing the march - with all but the far-Right Front
National in attendance.



Amar
Lasfar, president of the Union of French Islamic Organisations, tells
the paper: "This march will demonstrate that France is one and
indivisible. Muslims are like all other French citizens, independent of
their religion. The terrorists want to create a divide between Muslims
and the rest of our society. But we are French and Muslim."

the country's history, has travelled to Paris especially to join the
march.



He

and that we don't sink into fear. To defend society we need to build
solidarity."

which opened its doors to him 25 years ago".
