Close to the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris people came together to pay their respects to those that were murdered in Wednesday’s terrorist attack.
One Parisian explained what the cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo meant to him: “I came, firstly because I am a neighbour and secondly because the journalists, the cartoonists represented for me the spirit of May 68, I am 66-years-old.They brought a spirit of freedom and the impertinence of their deaths, the murder of that spirit is extremely symbolic for French people of my generation.”
A Muslim woman, deeply upset fears for the future: “They have nothing to do with Islam, nothing to do. They are barbarians and are they are coming back, they are coming back.”
Another man, through tears said: “They have no right to kill people who draw, who give their opinions its just terrible, it is a terrible thing.”
Euronews reporter in Paris Olaf Bruns said: “More and more people are coming to the scene of the crime to mourn. The atmosphere is dignified and many people keep repeating the phrase. We must keep going we must bounce back.”
