There were 3.7 million people at this weekend's anti-terrorism rally in Paris – the largest in French history.

One of those people was Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, who wore this simple, yet powerful symbol of solidarity in his jacket pocket.

Rama used to teach at the Academy of Arts of Albania and was an artist himself for years. As mayor of Tirana, he organized a mural project to transform Soviet-era ruins into colorful works of art.

A local Fox news affiliate in Baltimore has apologized for erroneously using a video clip of a protest to illustrate anti-police sentiment calling it an "honest misunderstanding."

In the video above, from a WBFF Fox45 news segment, a woman is heard chanting "kill a cop," which would indeed be startling if it were true, especially in light of the recent shootings in New York. But it's not.

Unfortunately for everyone involved, this is taken completely out of context, as many pointed out.

The original clip is from a "Justice For All" March in Washington, D.C., and the woman featured in the video, Tawanda Jones, is not asking for anyone to be killed.

"We won't stop! We can't stop! Till killer cops are in cell blocks!" she says as you can hear below (at 0:42).



Jones' brother Tyrone West died in 2013 while in police custody.

WBFF interviewed Jones following the screw up, and she said she is baffled as to why they edited the clip the way they did.

"You'd have to be an idiot – someone that hates – to say 'kill somebody,' especially some cops that I need to protect my family," she said. "Nobody deserves to be brutally murdered."
