Mass In Glasgow To Remember Paris Victims
A service has been held at St Andrew's Cathedral in Glasgow to remember those affected by the Paris terror attacks.
The Archbishop of Glasgow, Philip Tartaglia, offered a mass with the theme "hope and solidarity''.
Among those attending was Justice Secretary Michael Matheson, Honorary Consul of France Dr John Campbell, who did a reading in French, and Lord Provost Sadie Docherty.
Archbishop Tartaglia said: "In these cowardly actions of murder and terror, 129 people so far have lost their lives, many are seriously injured, hundreds have been bereaved and saddened, France is in mourning, and, in one way or another, all people of good will throughout Europe and the world will have been affected.
"It has been a profoundly disturbing time for all of us, for if it happened in Paris in restaurants, at a concert venue and at a football stadium, we realise that it could happen anywhere and it could have been any of us.
He added: "In this Mass, we pray for the dead, the injured, the bereaved, and for all those whose lives have been shattered by these acts of pitiless cruelty. And we pray for the citizens of Paris whose beautiful city has once again been turned into a brutal killing field.
"We pray that the men of violence and terror who seek to impose tyranny, to sow distrust and to engender strife will be defeated and ultimately banished by France's love for liberty, her instinct for equality, and her passion for fraternity.''
A police watchdog probe was launched after the remains of the 52-year-old were found in a house in Dumfries in February last year.
The accident happened at about 7.50pm on Thursday in Moodiesburn, North Lanarkshire.
More than 70 firefighters were needed to bring the blaze under control at Blochairn Fruit Market in the early hours of Thursday.
