Tensions between communities in Paris have grown since the terror attacks on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo Wednesday. The attack prompted worldwide support for freedom of the press. Unease continued Friday when suspects in the shooting took a hostage in print shop in Dammartin-en-Goele, 19 miles outside of Paris. At the same time, another suspect, Amedy Coulibaly, who claimed to be a part of the Islamic State, held hostages in a kosher market in Paris. All three suspects were killed by authorities, but a suspected accomplice, Hayat Boumeddiene is still at large.

CCTV America’s Asieh Namdar interviewed French columnist and blogger Philippe Moreau about the impact the terror attacks will have on French communities. Moreau said he believes that tension and unease has grown between Muslim communities since the Wednesday attacks.
