Police teams held a two minutes silence on Thursday morning as a tribute to those killed by gunmen in Paris
The people brutally gunned down in Paris have been remembered by Surrey and north-east Hampshire police officers.
Surrey Police and Hampshire Constabulary staged a two-minute silence at 10.30am on Thursday in respect to those killed the day before at the Charlie Hebdo magazine office.
The tributes took place around 24 hours after 12 victims including a policeman were shot in the French captial.
Constables and detectives based in Staines, Guildford, Woking, Epsom & Ewell, Reigate & Banstead, Runnymere and Mole Valley joined the memorial.
Mohammad Luqman Chaudhry, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Aldershot, said: “We condemn the attack on Charlie Hebdo and are deeply shocked by this atrocity that has taken 12 lives and injured scores more. We offer our condolences to the family of the victims and those left bereaved.
“It is hoped that the perpetrators of the attack are swiftly arrested and brought to justice with the full weight of the law.
“It is a great source of regret that such violent acts and terrorist activities continue to be associated with Islam – despite the fact they have nothing to do with Islam’s true teachings.”
Another police officer died on Thursday morning (January 8) after she and her colleague were shot in southern Paris.
It is not known at this stage whether the two shootings are connected.
