Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo: “It seemed so, so unfair – Charlie Hebdo were pacifists, they were the journalists and cartoonists we grew up with as children. They were like the big adolescents of your family – provocative, but in the French spirit, in the Parisian spirit of debates and confrontation through ideas. Suddenly it was like part of our heritage, our values, our light had been directly attacked.”

Saudi Arabian billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has said he will donate his entire $32bn (£20bn; €29bn) fortune to charity.

Prince Alwaleed, 60, is one of the world's richest people.

He said he had been inspired by the Gates Foundation, set up by Bill and Melinda Gates in 1997.

The money would be used to "foster cultural understanding", "empower women", and "provide vital disaster relief", among other things, he said.

Mr Gates praised the decision, calling it an "inspiration to all of us working in philanthropy around the world".

Prince Alwaleed is listed by Forbes at number 34 on the list of the world's richest people.

The money will go to the prince's charitable organisation, Alwaleed Philanthropies, to which he has already donated $3.5bn.
'Intrinsic part of my faith'

The prince, who does not hold an official government position, is chairman of investment firm Kingdom Holding Company.

The company owns stakes in hotels The Four Seasons, Fairmont and Raffles, as well as News Corp, Citigroup, Twitter and Apple.

The prince will be donating his personal wealth. "This is very much separate from my ownership in Kingdom Holding," he said at the announcement.

"Philanthropy is a personal responsibility, which I embarked upon more than three decades ago and is an intrinsic part of my Islamic faith," he added in a statement.

He said he hoped the gift would "help build bridges to foster cultural understanding, develop communities, empower women, enable youth, provide vital disaster relief and create a more tolerant and accepting world".

Prince Alwaleed's announcement comes during the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims are encouraged to give charity and help the needy.

He said the donation would take place over several years and would be overseen by a board of trustees, which he will head.

Saudi Prince Alwaleed said his charity "will help build bridges to foster cultural understanding, develop communities, empower women, enable youth, provide vital disaster relief and create a more tolerant and accepting world."
