French President Francois Hollande on Tuesday kicked off a week of commemorations marking the extremist rampage in Paris that began with an assault on satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo and lasted three days, claiming 17 lives.Hollande, flanked by Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, unveiled a plaque at Charlie Hebdo's former offices, where cartoonists who were household names in France, nicknamed Cabu, Wolinski and Charb, were killed along with nine others.The Jan. 7-9, 2015, attacks by brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi, dubbed "France's 9/11", marked the start of a string of extremist strikes in the country that culminated in the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris that left 130 dead.After the somber ceremony in a light drizzle, Hollande could be seen embracing Georges Wolinski's widow Maryse.Red-faced authorities admitted later that they had misspelled Wolinski's name, promising to correct the plaque "within the hour".
