France vowed to combat terrorism with "a cry for freedom" in a giant rally for unity Sunday after a three-day spree of violence horrified the world. Police searched for a woman linked to the three al-Qaida-inspired attackers, but a Turkish official said she appears to have already slipped into Syria. The rally Sunday is also a huge security challenge for a nation on alert for more violence, after 17 people and three gunmen were killed over three days of attacks on a satirical newspaper, a kosher supermarket and on police that horrified France and the world. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the attacks. Gaza's Islamic Hamas leaders condemned the attack on the satirical newspaper, but pointedly refrained from mentioning the kosher supermarket. Loyalists of al-Qaida and the Islamic State group extolled the attackers of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper as "lions of the caliphate". They described the attack as revenge for the French satirical publication's mockery of Islam's Prophet Muhammad and for France's military involvement in Muslim countries. That attack Wednesday was the first act in France's worst terrorist attacks in decades.
