France: Paris marks 5th anniversary of Charlie Hebdo attack

Parisians paid their respects to the victims of the 2015 Charlie Hebdo attacks on the fifth anniversary of the incident in the French capital on Monday. Mourners lay flowers at the entrance of the former Charlie Hebdo offices in memory of the 12 people who were murdered in the attack. An artist put up a poster resembling a Parisian street sign, reading «Freedom of Expression Square.» Twelve... Еще people, including a police officer, died in the attacks on the magazine's offices. The assault was carried out by two gunmen who were later killed by security forces outside of Paris. On Monday, the trial of 24 suspects linked to the attack kicked off in Paris, although just five of the accused are expected to hear in court, with the rest thought to have been killed after fleeing to the Middle East to join the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS).
