ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) At the end of four days of remembrance for the 17 people killed by militants in Paris one year ago, French President Francois Hollande on Sunday (January 10) led a memorial service in the city's iconic Place de la Republique. The three days of violence in January 2015 began with an attack on the Charlie Hebdo weekly and ended with dual sieges at a print works outside Paris and a kosher supermarket in the city. The bloodshed ended when French security forces killed the three gunmen. The victims included Charlie Hebdo editorial staff, people in the supermarket and police officers. French singer Johnny Hallyday sang A Sunday in January at the service.
