The Mayor of Derry and Strabane, Councillor Elisha McCallion has opened a book of condolence at the City’s Guildhall for the victims of the terrorist massacre in Paris.

Councillor McCallion was the first to sign the book this afternoon which is situated just inside the main entrance to the Guildhall and is open to everyone to leave their thoughts as Derry shows solidarity with the people of the French capital.

It has also been announced that Derry Anti-war Coalition will hold a peace vigil in Guildhall Square this Monday evening at 6pm and organisers are urging as many people as possible to attend.

At least 128 people have died after shootings and bombings on Friday night.

French President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency and said the attacks were an “act of war” organised by Islamic State militants.
