Last night, at least 1,000 people gathered in Quebec City in memory of the lives lost in last year’s terrorist attack at the Centre Culturel Islamique.

Azzedine Soufiane, Khaled Belkacemi, Aboubaker Thabti, Abdelkrim Hassane, Mamadou Tanou Barry and Ibrahima Barry were attending a prayer service when a gunman entered the mosque and began shooting. Nineteen people were also injured in the gruesome attack.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard also attended the one-year anniversary candlelight vigil.

Here is a look at how Quebecers stood in solidarity against hate and took time to remember the six men who were killed on January 29, 2017.
