It has been one year since Islamic extremists burst into Charlie Hebdo’s offices in Paris and gunned down the satirical newspaper’s staff.
Eleven people were killed when two French-born brothers stormed the building where Charlie Hebdo operated, along with a Muslim policeman outside.
Over the next two days, an accomplice shot a policewoman to death, then opened fire at a kosher supermarket, killing four hostages. All three gunmen died following the attack.
A plaque was unveiled in front of the building on Rue Nicolas-Appert on Tuesday, a second where the officer was shot, and a third at the Jewish supermarket. Mourners have stopped at the sites to pay tribute to the victims since the plaques were unveiled.
There will be a fourth plaque placed in the suburb of Montrouge where the policewoman was gunned down.
Following the attacks, the Paris prosecutor’s office says 54 people were detained for defending or glorifying terrorism.
France has been on high alert ever since the terror attacks that week, and was struck again November 13th by extremists dispatched by the Islamic State group.
A number of assailants, armed with guns and bombs, launched six attacks across the city, killing 129 people and leaving dozens injured.
There are no official events planned for Thursday, but French President Francois Hollande is scheduled to speak to soldiers charged with protecting against new attacks.
Survivors of the January attacks, meanwhile, are continuing to speak out.
