Charlie Hebdo: Gérald Darmanin and Anne Hidalgo moved to the old premises eight years after the attack
Eight years after the January 2015 attacks, Gérald Darmanin and Anne Hidalgo attended a ceremony to commemorate the 12 victims of Charlie Hebdo.
Eight years ago, on January 7, 2015, the Charlie Hebdo editorial office was hit by a violent attack that claimed 12 victims: Frédéric Boisseau, Franck Brinsolaro, Cabu, Elsa Cayat, Charb, Honoré, Bertrand Maris, Mustapha Ourrad, Michel Renaud , Tignous and Georges Wolinski.
To pay tribute to them, several politicians marched in front of the newspaper’s former premises this Saturday, January 7th. In particular, the Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin and the Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo.
They were accompanied by Rima Abdul-Malak, Minister of Culture, and Yaël Braun-Pivet, President of the National Assembly.
Gérald Darmanin shared this moment on Twitter, accompanied by the message: “Homage to the victims of the Islamist attack on Charlie Hebdo. It was eight years ago. Never forget”.
