Posted: Updated:

Four hostages were killed at a kosher grocery store in Paris by a gunman police say had connections to the two men who attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo.

The gunman at the supermarket near the Porte de Vincennes metro station was killed in a raid by police Friday. The Charlie Hebdo gunmen were killed in a separate raid in the town of Dammartin-en-Goele near Paris.

All day, people have been taking to Twitter to honour those targeted for their religion. They are using the hashtag #JeSuisJuif ("I am Jewish")

Many are calling on those who used #JeSuisCharlie and #JeSuisAhmed to also use #JeSuisJuif


Others are outraged that people would be attacked simply for who they are


Because freedom of religion is as important to democracy as freedom of speech


Many wonder why the hashtag isn't trending


And express frustration that Jewish people have been told to stay home


Others are in disbelief


Mostly, people are simply heartbroken

RIP
