Hundreds of people gather in Sydney's Martin Place on Sunday to remember the victims of the fatal shooting and hostage attack in Paris last week. Many held up signs with the logo "I Am Charlie" meant to symbolize the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo where 12 people were gunned down by Islamic extremists. Still reeling from their own hostage attack at a cafe here in December, well wishers expressed their solidarity. (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED PERSON SAYING: "It's a big thing for us to be here today and say, look we're not there but we're with you." In Paris, security is in place for a massive unity march expected later Sunday. Various world leaders and heads of state from across Europe are expected to join the silent march with what could be hundreds of thousands of French citizens. Seventeen people, including civilians, journalists and police officers, lost their lives in three three days of violence that's shaken the country.
