Hundreds of Thousands March for Victims in France

More than 210,000 participated in silent marches for the victims of this week's string of terrorist attacks in France on Saturday, prompting French authorities to deploy 500 extra troops in cities around the country to protect the demonstrators.

Thousands marched silently in French cities like Paris, Nice, Orleans, Pau, Toulouse and Nantes to honor the victims and express solidarity as a nation. Almost 25,000 marched in Nice alone, some holding flags and signs to show support.
