FRANCE– Hundreds of thousands of people have gathered in France to march against terrorism in response to the Charlie Hebdo attacks that led to the deaths of 17 people earlier this week.

Matthieu C., a 31-year-old who lives down the street from Charlie Hebdo told NBC, “We need to continue to live. But we still need to rally and show that we will resist barbarism and fear… And show that we are together in fighting religious fanaticism.”

He added that the French security forces have made impressive efforts.

“It took three days to find three very isolated guys in a massive region, very densely populated… It gives us confidence in the French police.”

Outside the kosher supermarket in Port de Vincennes were four hostages were killed Friday, police with automatic weapons stood guard as bystanders left flowers.

There was also a vigil in Bristol organized by the French community.

Other countries show France that they do not stand alone in the fight against terrorism.
