In solidarity with our French neighbours
Hundreds of people gathered in Trafalgar Square last night to commemorate the victims of the attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices in Paris.
Yesterday morning 12 people were killed and 11 more injured after gunmen stormed the office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Vigils were held yesterday night, with thousands of people gathering in towns and cities in France and across the world.
In London, the gathering was quiet and peaceful, according to The Independent. Hundreds of people held up #JeSuisCharlie signs along with pens and pencils. Here are some pictures from Twitter.
