French terrorism authorities are investigating a stabbing of two people Friday outside the building, and two suspects have been arrested, authorities said. France’s counterterrorism prosecutor said authorities suspect a terrorist motive because the building was the scene of a 2015 extremist attack on the newspaper’s cartoonists that killed 12 people. A trial of the suspects in that attack is under way across town. (AP Photo/Lewis Joly)

The Prime Minister of Northern Ireland banned all parades and outdoor meetings in the country following this violent conflict, which injured more than 300 people. He also appealed for an end to hostilities in the six-county area where religious differences have divided Catholics and Protestants for more than three centuries. RNS archive photo.
