European leaders to show solidarity at Paris attacks rally

European leaders will make an extraordinary show of support for France by joining a mass rally in Paris this weekend as a wave of global support continues following the bloody end to the Charlie Hebdo attacks’ sieges.

British Prime Minister David Cameron and Spanish Prime Minister Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, whose countries have suffered major terror attacks in the past decade, were among the first to say they would attend a huge rally in Paris on Sunday.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said they would also come.

European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said they would attend the Paris rally as well, accompanied by the EU’s foreign affairs supremo Federica Mogherini.

Britain’s Prince Harry meanwhile signed a book of condolence in London.
