Jean Jullien drew this when he heard on the radio about the terrorist attacks in his native France. While everyone else tried to share their feelings with words, he drew this picture, which quickly spread on social media.

He told the Telegraph: “It was my most direct reaction. Usually when I draw I make an image that will make people laugh, or communicate.

“But this time I felt like communicating something that made me and everybody very upset. It was just my way of sharing my reaction, of sharing a need for peace and solidarity in the face of such a disaster.”

This by Patrick Pinter is evocative of the vigils which have been held around the world. The candle is also a symbol of peace.
