 French President Francois Hollande gave a televised speech today urging his people to act with "vigilance and unity" following the Charlie Hebdo terror attacks, reports Euro News. The French "will not give in to fear and we are capable of defending ourselves against threats," he says. The Guardian quotes him as saying that "we a free nation that does not give in. We carry an ideal that is greater than us." On another note, Hollande says that the terror suspects (two of whom were killed in a police raid today) "have nothing do with the Muslim religion." He also calls a related siege at a kosher market in Paris, where four hostages died, "an appalling anti-Semitic act." The president adds that France is proud of its police for their efficiency and bravery.
