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.

The march began at the Newseum downtown and concluded at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, where participants stopped for a moment of silence. Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, was among those who participated.

The biggest of Sunday’s rallies was in Paris, where more than one million people streamed into the heart of the city.
