Hollande: Gunmen had 'nothing to do with' Muslim religion

In a speech Friday afternoon, French President Francois Hollande confirmed that four people were killed in the day's supermarket attack. He also made an effort to console the country after multiple hostage situations.

Hollande condemned the attack on a Jewish store, calling it "a dreadful anti-Semitic act." He also praised France's police force for their "bravery and efficiency" in responding to the day's events.

The president also emphasized the fact that the gunmen were "fanatics" and don't represent the Muslim faith as a whole. Hollande added that the French people "mustn't be divided."
