A minute's silence will be held across Wales from 11am today as a mark of respect to those killed in the Paris terror attacks.

The silence here is part of a similar events taking place across Europe this morning.

France is currently in three days of national mourning following the attacks on Friday evening, which left at least 129 people dead. Hundreds more remain injured in hospital.

Yesterday Islamic State claimed responsibility for the shootings and suicide bombings across the French capital.

Marie Brousseau-Navarro, Wales' honorary consul of France, said it was important that people across both nations stayed strong together in the face of such incidents.
