French President Francois Hollande said Thursday that Muslims were the "main victims" of fanaticism, as five of the 17 people killed in last week's Islamist attacks in Paris were laid to rest.Georges Wolinski, 80, and Bernard "Tignous" Verlhac, 57, were buried at private family funerals after they were gunned down by two Islamist brothers in the attack claimed by Al-Qaeda.After the shooting at Charlie Hebdo, in which 12 people died, the French rushed to get their hands on the "survivors' issue" which sold out Wednesday before more copies of an eventual print run of 5 million hit newsstands.The Charlie Hebdo assault on Jan. 7 was followed two days later by an attack on a kosher supermarket in Paris by a gunman claiming to have coordinated his actions with brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi.Amedy Coulibaly, who shot dead four Jewish men at a kosher supermarket in Paris and a policewoman the day before in attacks he said were coordinated with the Kouachi brothers, has claimed links to the ISIS group.It comes at a time when about 120,000 police officers and other forces are deployed around France as the government seeks to prevent future attacks.
