French clubs to hold minute's silence for victims of Charlie Hebdo attack

Lille players in prematch huddle during the minute's silence on Wednesday evening.

Clubs in France's top two divisions will hold a minute's silence ahead of matches this weekend in memory of the 12 people killed in the attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris.
