People gathered at Republique Square in Paris early on Sunday to pay tribute to the victims of the shootings.

Flowers, candles and messages were left below the statue in the square, which will be the departure point of the silent march later on Sunday.

One woman was sceptical about so many political guests and hoped that unity would prevail at the end of the day.

"We would never thought that there would be some speeches or such things�we just need to march and think about all these kind people that were slaughtered like that." said pensioner Francoise, with tears in her eyes.

Zakaria Moumni expressed hope that people would stay united.

"Everyone, Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, we are humans first of all," he said.

"And nobody deserves to be murdered like that. Nobody."

Police were guarding key installations around Paris early on Sunday ahead of a huge rally to commemorate the victims of the French terror attacks.

A rally of defiance and sorrow, protected by an unparalleled level of security, will honour the 17 victims of three days of bloodshed in Paris that left France on alert for more violence.

More than 2,000 police were being deployed to protect the demonstration.

France was still on high alert while investigators determine whether the attackers were part of a larger extremist network.

Among the expected hundreds of thousands attendees Sunday are leaders from around the world, including the Israeli prime minister and the Palestinian president.

Despite the unprecedented state of alert, Parisians said they would not be deterred from joining the rally.

A day after four hostages were killed at a Jewish supermarket in Paris, local residents who witnessed the shootout that ended the drama recounted their experiences.

Micheline Mbetolo, 37, lives in the apartment block next to the supermarket with her husband, her five year old son and her baby daughter.

She described how she clutched her baby in terror as gunfire erupted.

Another neighbour, dance teacher Lalia Mederreg, 59, said her legs were shaking as she heard stun grenades exploding.

A Jewish doctor, Pascal Belisse, said some of his patients had family members who were inside the store when the drama began.

At least one on them was taken hostage, but survived and was taken to hospital.

On Saturday, people laid flowers, lit candles and paid homage to the victims at a makeshift shrine opposite the supermarket.

Hundreds of members of the French community in Athens gathered with Greeks and others outside the French Institute in the Greek capital on Thursday, in a show of solidarity and support for the victims of a gun attack on the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris a day earlier.

Twelve people were killed in Wednesday's attack.

Those demonstrating in Athens were thanked by the French ambassador to Greece Jean Loup Kuhn-Delforge who praised the "multiple actions of solidarity" taking place across Europe.

"What is under attack in reality is pluralism, the freedom of press, and the plurality of expression", he said.

Also present was Charlie Hebdo correspondent in Greece Angelique Kourounis who visibly shocked, nevertheless said her colleagues were "expecting something like this".

Demonstrations in support of the victims of the Paris shooting also took place in over 30 Dutch towns and cities on Thursday evening.

Around five thousand people gathered in Amsterdam's Dam Square holding the now ubiquitous "Je Suis Charlie" placards.

They were joined by Dutch Prime minister Mark Rutte.

Similar gatherings took place in Rotterdam, The Hague, Leeuwarden, Delft, Leiden, Utrecht, Amstelveen, Arnhem, Zwolle, Maastricht and Eindhoven and many other towns.

Meanwhile at the offices of News Bar, a satirical web portal based in Zagreb, Croatia, the editorial staff were coming to terms with what Wednesday's attack might mean for their own operation.

"This is a warning for all satirists and journalists that this kind of thing actually can happen and is around us," said News Bar editor Vlado Lucic.

Two brothers suspected of a deadly attack on a French satirical newspaper were cornered inside a printing warehouse northeast of Paris on Friday, possibly with a hostage, on Friday.

Security forces backed by a convoy of ambulances streamed into the small industrial town of Dammartin-en-Goele, in a massive operation to seize the men suspected of carrying out Wednesday's attack on the offices of newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi were named as the chief suspects after Said's identity card was left behind in their abandoned getaway car.

They were holed up on Friday inside CTF Creation Tendance Decouverte, a printing house in Dammartin-en-Goele.

At least three helicopters hovered over the town, and authorities appealed for residents to stay inside.

Ministry of Interior Affairs spokesman Pierre Henry Brandet was at the scene and said it was not clear whether a hostage was being held by the two suspects.

Earlier reports had suggested a hostage was being held.

He said police special forces were attempting to open a dialogue with the brothers, but that police were preparing for a potential assault on the premises.

Residents of Dammartin-en-Goele spoke of their relief on Friday night after hearing the news that the hostage situation at a nearby printing plant was over.

Said and Cherif Kouachi, the brothers who attacked the Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly newspaper, were killed when they came out with guns blazing on Friday evening after an all-day hostage siege, a French police official said.

Their hostage survived.

The Mayor of the small industrial town near Charles de Gaulle airport, Michel Dutruge, described Friday as a "hard and stressful day", after hearing at eight in the morning that the fugitive Kouachi brothers were holed up in his town.

"You say to yourself that you should react quickly� So we close public offices, we tell shopkeepers to close their stores, and especially schools� We tell them to confine children and not to move until further instructions," he said on Friday evening.

France has been on high alert since the Charlie Hebdo massacre left 12 people dead.

The Kouachi brothers led police on a chase around northeast France, robbing a petrol station on Thursday and stealing a car on Friday morning before seizing a hostage at the printing plant in Dammartin-en-Goele.

On Friday afternoon, explosions and gunshots rang out and white smoke rose from the plant as a tactical team clambered onto the roof.

Audrey Taupenas, a spokeswoman for Dammartin-en-Goele, said the brothers had died in the clash.

Frightened yet defiant, French residents held a day of mourning on Thursday for 12 people slain at Paris newspaper, Charlie Hebdo.

The famous parisian landmark, the Eiffel Tower, dimmed its lights plunging the night sky into darkness.

While at the Place de la Republique in downtown Paris, thousands gathered for a candlelit vigil.

Holding up pens and banners reading (French) "I am Charlie," they stood silent in remembrance of their fallen countrymen.

Among those gathered were journalism students from across Paris.

"Journalism has not been attacked," said one student, Batiste Denis.

"It was the freedom and the liberty of expression was being attacked yesterday and we will never agree with that," he added.

Louis Chenut, another journalism student said "It is our work and our duty to inform people, to denounce and to protest against illegalities."

"I am not afraid," he said.

Earlier on Thursday, French President Francois Hollande gathered members of both houses of the French Parliament to further discuss Wednesday's attack.

Hollande - joined by residents, tourists and Muslim leaders - called for tolerance after the country's worst terrorist attack in decades.

At noon, the Paris metro came to a standstill and a crowd fell silent near Notre Dame cathedral to honour Wednesday's victims.

French police, meanwhile, hunted for the two heavily armed brothers suspected in the massacre, fearing they might strike again.

The two suspects - one a former pizza deliveryman who had a prior terror conviction - should be considered "armed and dangerous," French police said in a bulletin.

Ninety people have been questioned so far in the investigation and nine people close to the two suspects - Cherif Kouachi, 32, and his 34-year-old brother Said Kouachi - were detained for further questioning, officials said.

French President Francois Hollande met with police on Thursday, a day after attackers killed 12 people at the offices of French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

Hollande, accompanied by Interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve and Paris Public Prosecutor Francois Molins toured a police centre in Paris.

Eight journalists, two police officers, a maintenance worker and a visitor were killed in the attack and eleven more people were wounded, four of them critically.

Since the attack, France raised its terror alert system to maximum and bolstered security with more than 800 extra soldiers guarding media offices, places of worship, transport and other sensitive areas.

Amid tension, a police officer was shot on the southern edge of Paris early Thursday and a nearby street sweeper was injured.

It was not immediately clear whether the attack was linked to the assault on the newspaper Charlie Hebdo, in which two police officers were among the dead.

In other incidents, two explosions hit near mosques early Thursday, raising fears the deadly attack at Charlie Hebdo would ignite a backlash against France's large and diverse Muslim community.

Satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad and witnesses said the attackers claimed allegiance to al-Qaida. One of the suspects on the run had a past conviction for recruiting jihadis to fight in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Parisians and visitors gathered in front of the Notre Dame cathedral in central Paris to pay their respects to the victims of the attack.

The cathedral fell silent for a while to honour Wednesday's victims.

One Australian visitor to Paris said the very spirit of France had been targeted in the attack.

Another man said the deaths at Charlie Hebdo meant a lot to the French and to the victims of deadly crime the world over.

Authorities extended France's maximum terror alert from Paris to the northern Picardie region on Thursday, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told reporters.

Police were focusing on several towns that might be possible safe havens for two suspects in the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, according to Cazeneuve.

Ninety people have been questioned so far in the investigation and nine people close to the two suspects - Cherif Kouachi, 32, and his 34-year-old brother Said Kouachi - were detained for further questioning, officials said.

Cazeneuve told journalists that Said Kouachi's had been formally identified as an attacker and his identity card had been found in the abandoned getaway car.

By Thursday afternoon, authorities focused their search around the towns Villers-Cotterets and Crepy-en-Valois northeast of Paris, according to an official with the national gendarme service.

Two men resembling the suspects robbed a gas station in Villers-Cotterets early on Thursday, and police swarmed the site while helicopters hovered above.

Later large numbers of special police units arrived in Crepy-en-Valois amid reports the suspects had holed up there.

However, the gendarme official later said the men had not yet been located.

A third suspect, Mourad Hamyd, 18, surrendered at a police station after hearing his name linked to the attacks, a Paris prosecutor's spokeswoman said.
