1. SOUNDBITE (English) John Kerry, Secretary of State:
"I would like to say directly to the people of Paris and all of France - that each and every American stands with you today, not just in horror or in anger, or outrage for this vicious act of violence; but we stand with you in solidarity and in commitment both to the cause of confronting extremism - and in the cause with the extremists fear so much, and has always united our two countries - Freedom. No country knows better than France that freedom has a price, because France gave birth to democracy itself. France sparked so many revolutions of the human spirit. Born of freedom and of free expression, and that is what the extremists fear the most."
