A ceremony took place in central Paris to remember those killed in the Charlie Hebdo attacks a year ago.

To honour the kosher store victims, the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions of France (CRIF) organised a commemoration outside the supermarket after sundown on Saturday.
President Hollande laid a wreath in the Place de la Republique, where a commemorative oak tree was unveiled, and a minute’s silence was observed.
Relatives of some of the victims also attended Sunday’s event, the culmination of a week of ceremonies.
