Also leading the march were relatives of the Paris terrorist attack victims: the 10 people shot inside the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper on Wednesday; the two police officers also shot; a policewoman killed the next day; and four hostages shot at a kosher supermarket on Friday.

As the French President offered his condolences to the families, details of another victim came to light.

It has been revealed a jogger who was shot and wounded in Paris on Wednesday night was shot by the gunman who killed the hostages at the kosher supermarket.
