In conversation with Philippe Zeller, French ambassador to Canada

The diplomat reacts to the massacre in Paris—and an outpouring of support from Canadians
A bullet’s impact is seen on a window at the scene after a shooting at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical newspaper, January 7, 2015. Eleven people were killed and 10 injured in shooting at the Paris offices of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, already the target of a firebombing in 2011 after publishing cartoons deriding Prophet Mohammad on its cover, police spokesman said. Five of the injured were in a critical condition, said the spokesman. Separately, the government said it was raising France’s national security level to the highest notch. Jacky Naegelen/Reuters

As cartoonists paid tribute to yesterday’s shooting death of 12 people at Charlie Hebdo‘s office in Paris, French authorities continued a manhunt for two suspects. Canadians, meanwhile, sent their own messages of solidarity and condolence. France’s ambassador to Canada, Philippe Zeller, heard them all. OMNI-TV’s David Battistelli sat down with him.
