    Security forces remained on high alert before a march on Sunday which will bring together European leaders in a show of solidarity for the 17 victims killed in three days of violence that began with an attack on the Charlie Hebdo weekly on Wednesday and ended with Friday's dual sieges at a print works outside Paris and a kosher supermarket in the city.

    French security forces shot dead the two brothers behind the Hebdo killings after they took refuge in the print works. They also killed an associate - Boumeddiene's partner - who planted explosives at the Paris deli in a siege that claimed the lives of four hostages. Read more.

    Discuss: after this weeks attacks in France, how do we achieve a long-lasting end to Islamic terrorism?

    Finland, although wanting a peaceful end to most situations, we agree that Terrorism needs to be eradicated and in a similar case, security forces should shoot when necessary.

    Canada encourages the idea of education and a strong community spirit within nations. We regularly fund community activities in the hopes of keeping the most vulnerable (youth) from dangerous extremism.

    Mexico similarly agrees, but this education should make it very clear that the consequences are severe if a citizen gets involved with terrorist activity.
