MOSCOW, January 9. /TASS/. An action of solidarity with the French people in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris is scheduled to be held outside France’s embassy in Moscow on Friday.
The event, due to begin at 2:00 p.m. Moscow time (1100 GMT), is organized by Russian youth groups. The plans of holding such an action have been “actively discussed in social networks,” the head of the Russian Federal Agency for Youth Affairs Sergey Pospelov said.
“Young people are outraged by rampant terror, and there have been calls for supporting young journalists and the freedom of speech,” Pospelov told TASS.
The participants are expected to lay flowers and light candles near the embassy in memory of the journalists killed in Paris.
On Wednesday morning, masked gunmen targeted an office of the Paris-based satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine, which earlier published caricature images of the Prophet Muhammed. As a result the shooting, 12 people were killed, including 10 staff members and two policemen. Another 11 people were wounded. This is the deadliest attack in France in half a century.
