8th January 2015, Comments 0 comments

The UN Security Council on Thursday observed a moment of silence in memory of the 12 people killed in the attack on the Charlie Hebdo weekly in Paris.

The 15 envoys rose and the room fell silent after Chilean Ambassador Cristian Barros Melet expressed the council's "profound sadness over the intolerable attack that took place yesterday in Paris."

The council has strongly condemned the "barbaric and cowardly terrorist attack" that killed the weekly's chief editor and three cartoonists.
