Dutch take to the streets in support of Charlie Hebdo, demonstrations nationwide
Tens of thousands of people took part in demonstrations throughout the Netherlands on Thursday evening to show their support for the victims of the Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris.
In Amsterdam, an estimated 17,000 crammed in to the city's Dam Square to listen to prime minister Mark Rutte and mayor Eberhard van der Laan, among others.
Many people were carrying pencils or pens and banners stating 'Je suis Charlie'. The march, from the French consulate to the Dam, was led by journalists and police officers. The police presence on the Dam itself was low.
