Upwards of 1.5 million people participated in the anti-terror march in Paris on Sunday.
World leaders, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, linked arms as they marched 1.9 miles through France’s capital from Place de la Republique to Place de la Nation.
Many of the family members of the victims led the march alongside the world leaders.
A minute of silence was held before that march began for the 17 victims murdered over the past 3 days.
5500 French police and military personnel have been called out to protect the city. 2200 of them just to protect the route of the march.
The presence of PA President Mahmoud Abbas was out of place at an anti-terrorism rally, considering Abbas’s role in the Munich Massacre, his decision to name streets and plazas in the Palestinian Authority after terrorists, and his paying salaries to terrorists in jail.
Update #1: LeMonde says that up to 2 million people are at the march.
Update #2: Up to 3 million people are at the march throughout France.
Update #3: Estimates now say that close to 4 million people across France marched in solidarity against terrorism.
