Paris Attacks: Charlie Hebdo Cartoonists Funerals Held.

Funerals have been held for four people killed in last week's attack in Paris on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo by militant Islamists.

Friends and family paid last respects to cartoonists Bernard Verlhac, known as Tignous, and Georges Wolinski, as well as a columnist and a policeman.
Pope Francis condemned the attacks but said there were limits to freedom of expression and people's faith should not be insulted.
Seventeen people died in the attacks.
Eight magazine staff, a visitor to the magazine and a caretaker died, as well as three police officers and four people at a Jewish supermarket.
Al-Qaeda said it had directed the Charlie Hebdo attack.
'King of jokes' A private funeral service was held for Tignous, 57, in the suburb of Montreuil, ahead of his burial in Pere Lachaise, Paris' best known resting place for writers, artists and composers.
A ceremony was held at Pere Lachaise for Wolinski, who was to be cremated.

Meanwhile friends and family also attended funerals for Charlie Hebdo columnist Elsa Cayat and Franck Brinsolaro, a policeman assigned to guard Charlie Hebdo editor Stephane Charbonnier.
Crowds in Montreuil applauded Tignous' coffin as it arrived for the ceremony at Montreuil town hall covered in drawings and messages from well-wishers.
In a tribute at the ceremony, Tignous' colleague Corinne Rey described him as the "king of jokes".
"Our magazine will live, it will be a different magazine," she said. "You were never afraid, my Titi and be assured, we won't be afraid either."
Also speaking at Montreuil, Justice Minister Christine Taubira said the dead cartoonists were the "guardian angels, those who watch out to make sure democracy was working" and the "face of France, obnoxiously assassinated."
"You were dreaming of being free, we will continue your dream."
At Wolinski's funeral, his daughter Elsa said his ideals would live on.
"I'm beginning to realise that he is gone," she said. "But as I said before, they've killed a man and not his ideas. So here we are. We stand here and will continue to defend the principles of Charlie Hebdo."
