Europe will fall silent at 11am GMT this morning, as millions of people in the continent stand united to honor the memory of those who lost their lives in Friday’s terror attacks in the French capital.
A joint statement by European leaders reads:
“The European Union is deeply shocked and in mourning after the terrorist attacks in Paris. It is an attack against us all,” a joint statement from EU leaders read.
“We will face this threat together with all necessary means and ruthless determination.
“Good is stronger than evil. Everything that can be done at European level to make France safe will be done. We will do what is necessary to defeat extremism, terrorism and hatred.”
