A moment of silence was held this morning at Victoria Park in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo and the victims of recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
Concerned local residents with French ties marked a minute of silence at 10am to coincide with the official rallies taking place in France.
A spokesman for the organisers said: “This peaceful vigil will give Bermuda the opportunity to reaffirm the values it shares with the French people — freedom, equality and brotherhood — while also taking a stand against threats to freedom of expression.”
He added that people of all religious denominations are welcome to attend to further emphasise the importance of unity and solidarity against terror.
