French President Francois Hollande on Tuesday unveiled a plaque to honour the victims of the attack at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, as France marked a year since Islamic extremists targeted the satirical magazine, police officers and a kosher market, killing 17 people.
Families of victims joined Hollande, Prime Minister Manuel Valls and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, in unveiling the plaque near the building where Charlie Hebdo staff were holding an editorial meeting when two heavily armed brothers stormed in on 7 January, 2015, killing 11 people.
They then paid homage to police officer Ahmed Merabet, who was killed as he tried to chase down the fleeing gunmen.
Spraypainted on the road was a message of support for the Muslim officer, reading "Je suis Ahmed", or "I am Ahmed", in the red, white and blue of the French flag.
Later in the day, Hollande was to pay homage to four people killed at the kosher supermarket on 9 January.
The 17th victim, a police officer, was killed by one of the gunmen on 8 January.
