Slain French police buried, Hollande attending

Victims of a wave of Islamist attacks in France are being buried as the Charlie Hebdo weekly hits back after the massacre of its staff with a front-page cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed under the banner: “All is forgiven.”

Draped in the red, white and blue of France’s flag, the coffins of three police officers killed during the attacks are carried at a solemn ceremony attended by President Francois Hollande as uniformed colleagues line a large square of the police headquarters in Paris. The ceremony takes place at the same time as the funeral ceremony for the four Jewish victims of the supermarket takes place in Jerusalem.
