At least 129 people were killed, and another 352 hurt when six coordinated attacks were perpetrated in Paris Friday night.
The country was put under a state of emergency and people were asked to stay indoors.
On Saturday vigils were held around the world as people stood in solidarity with the French people.
I am shocked and saddened that so many people have been killed and injured in violent attacks in #Paris. Canada stands with France.

Face à l’effroi, il y a une Nation qui sait se défendre, sait mobiliser ses forces et, une fois encore, saura vaincre les terroristes.
