Brooklyn Prays for France

 Brooklyn residents, religious leaders and elected officials gathered in Carroll Park Sunday night for a candlelight vigil to honor the victims of terrorism in Paris.

 The event was organized by Borough President Eric Adams. Religious leaders prayed in Hebrew, English, Arabic and French. Elected officials spoke of unity in the face of terror, and sent a message to France: "We are with you."

 A few hundred people walked with candles to St. Agnes Church, where a service was held.

Terror victims in Kenya and Lebanon were also remembered, and officials carried their flags along the route, next to the flags of the U.S. and France.
