WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s capital is among the cities around the globe where people have gathered to honor the 17 victims who died during three days of bloodshed in Paris last week.

The French Embassy says around 3,000 people gathered Sunday afternoon for a silent march in remembrance of the victims. The embassy organized the march, which was led by Gerard Araud, the French ambassador to the United States.

Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, was among those who participated.
