Montreal Assembles for Charlie Hebdo
More than a thousand people attended a vigil Wednesday evening following the shootings at French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, gathering outside France’s consulate in downtown Montreal.
According to the Facebook description of the event, it was organized to give support to the families and victims in the aftermath of the attack.
Twelve people were killed by two people wearing masks at the office of the weekly magazine.
In 2011, the Charlie Hebdo offices were firebombed following an issue which satirized sharia law.
More demonstrations have been organized in Montreal and throughout Canada following the initial demonstration.
