Channel Islands show solidarity with France and victims of Paris shooting


Following the January 7th terrorist atrocities in Paris the Chief Ministers of Guernsey and Jersey have sent messages of condolence to the President of the French Republic, François Hollande, on behalf of the governments of both Islands. Across the Islands vigils were held, flags were flown at half-mast and Books of Condolence were opened, while police in both Islands joined forces throughout Britain to observe a two minute silence in memory of their colleagues caught up in the attacks. Senator Philip Ozouf, Jersey’s Assistant Chief Minister, attended the Unity March in Paris on January 11th to show the Channel Islands solidarity with France
