About a hundred people, mostly French now living in Dunedin, have gathered in the Octagon to support the victims of terrorist attacks in the French capital.

The vigil was organised by local French language and culture group Alliance Francaise de Dunedin.

The group has organised a minute's silence at noon tomorrow Paris time (12am Tuesday NZ time) by the peace pole in front of the Otago Museum.

A second minute's silence will be held at noon on Tuesday for people who cannot make the first one.
