Thursday will be a national day of mourning for those killed in the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, French President Francois Hollande said in a national address today.

The two gunmen believed to be responsible for the attack, which left 12 dead, were on the loose, French authorities said. Around France and the rest of Europe, thousands turned out for rallies Wednesday evening, expressing solidarity with the satirical magazine and the nation of France. The crowds pledged defiance to those behind the bloodshed.
