ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Thousands of people took to the streets of Marseille on Saturday (December 10) to remember the victims of a deadly attack on the Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly newspaper earlier this week. In three bloody days, 17 people lost their lives in shootings and two sieges. The dual police sieges ended with three gunmen being killed in Paris and a northern French town. Emotions ran high as people carried posters with the popular "Je suis Charlie" (I am Charlie) slogan, with 50,000 attending the demonstration, according to police. Other vigils took place in Nantes, Lille, Toulouse, Nice, Pau, Orleans, Besancon and Caen. France plans a unity rally on Sunday (January 11) to protest against the attacks. Among those due to attend are German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Prime Ministers David Cameron of Britain, Matteo Renzi of Italy and Mariano Rajoy of Spain, and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.
