Paris (AFP) - Jordan's king and queen will attend a mass national rally in Paris on Sunday, in tribute to the 17 victims of a three-day Islamist killing spree, the French presidency said.

Some 45 foreign leaders and officials will be present at the historic march in the French capital, which is expected to attract around a million people under high security.
