Religious leaders condemn Paris terrorist attacks

Christian and Muslim leaders have strongly denounced the Jan. 7 attacks in Paris when suspected Islamist terrorists stormed the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and opened fire during an editorial meeting. Twelve people were killed, including two police officers, and 10 were wounded in the attack, the worst act of terrorism in France for 50 years.

France awoke Jan. 8 to reports that several arrests had been made in Reims overnight in connection with the attacks and news that a gunman had killed a policewoman in an incident in southern Paris. It is unclear whether the latest shooting is related to the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

French imams, Vatican jointly condemn attack on Paris paper

Four leading French imams and the Vatican have issued a joint statement denouncing the Paris newspaper massacre, warning that the world is a dangerous place without freedom of expression but urging the media to be respectful of religion.

The Muslim spiritual leaders were visiting the Vatican this week along with French Catholic bishops. The Vatican’s office for interreligious dialogue on Thursday said the four joined Pope Francis in condemning the cruelty of the attack and urging all believers to show solidarity with its the victims. They stressed that dialogue among different faiths is the only way to eliminate prejudice.
