ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: French President Francois Hollande and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the Grand Synagogue in Paris on Sunday (January 11) after a march in tribute of the victims of Islamist militant attacks. Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and a leader of the Paris Muslim community were also among the synagogue attendees. Netanyahu was greeted with loud cheers from the packed synagogue as the Paris Jewish community reels from Islamist militant attacks which included a deadly assault inside a kosher supermarket. Earlier on Sunday, Hollande and leaders from Germany, Italy, Israel, Turkey, Britain and the Palestinian territories among others, joined million-plus French citizens in an unprecedented march under high security to pay tribute to victims of last week's attacks. Seventeen people, including journalists and police, were killed in three days of violence that began with a shooting attack on the weekly Charlie Hebdo known for its satirical depictions of Islam and other religions as well as politicians. It ended on Friday (January 9) with a hostage-taking at a Jewish deli in which four hostages and the gunman were killed.
