A minute silence was held across Northern Ireland yesterday (Monday) to remember the victims of the Paris terrorist attack.

Politicians at Stormont observed the silence in the Great Hall, while people visiting the Christmas Continental Market at Belfast’s City Hall also took part in the tribute to those who lost their lives.

Belfast Lord Mayor Arder Carson was the first to sign the book followed by Honorary French Consulate Regine McCullough.

After taking part in the tribute at Stormont, Secretary of State Theresa Villiers later visited City Hall and signed the book of condolence.

The attacks at various locations across the French capital have left 132 people dead and more than 350 injured
