Silent march in Washington to commemorate French terrorist attacks

On Sunday afternoon, several thousand people turned up in Washington for a silent march organised by the French Embassy. The march was held on the same day as millions joined the leaders of dozens of countries in Paris. In Washington, the ambassadors from several countries together with dignitaries, religious leaders and thousands of concerned citizens joined the French Ambassador to the USA, Gérard Araud. The participants gathered in front of the Newseum in Washington, a museum dedicated to the press and freedom of expression.
