Dozens of world leaders walked arm in arm as they led a defiant march through Paris in the wake of the terror attacks that shocked the French capital.

Families of the victims were among over one million people who packed the city to show their support for Parisians mourning the deaths of the 17 people killed in last week's atrocities.

People on the march carried banners, placards and posters bearing all sorts of slogans of defiance.

Others carried drawings and pictures in honour of the slain cartoonists.

A huge pencil bearing the words "not afraid" was carried through the crowd, while others raised posters to create a giant image apparently depicting the eyes and glasses of the magazine's murdered editor, Stephanie Charbonnier.

Another banner bore the lyrics of John Lennon's famous song Imagine, dreaming of a world of peace.

A young boy held up a poster that read: "When I grow up, I'll be a journalist. I'm not afraid."
