World leaders join Paris march of 'millions' for attack victims

Millions of people were expected to join a march through Paris Sunday in solidarity with the victims of the Islamist attacks, with dozens of world leaders to attend the show of support for France. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls predicted the massive turnout to honour the 17 killed in the attacks which targeted a satirical magazine, kosher supermarket and police. “I have no doubt that millions of citizens will come to express their love of liberty, their love of fraternity,” he told thousands gathered Saturday near where a gunman killed four hostages at the supermarket. France has deployed thousands of police and troops to beef up security ahead of the march, which follows rallies across France on Saturday which drew more than 700,000 in support of the victims of the three-day killing spree.
