The French consul in Gibraltar Pierre Fayaud, Chief Minister Fabian Picardo and the staff of No6 Convent Place will gather outside the building to observe the silence.

Private workplaces are also urged to show their support for the victims.

“We have flown our flags at half mast,” said Picardo.

“We have lit the Moorish Castle in the colours of the French Tricolour flag.”

He added: “At midday we will stop our hectic working lives to remember the lives of those cruelly murdered and I urge all of our Community to join us in this sign of respect for the people of France.” Flags on Government buildings will be flown at half mast until Monday evening.
