Hundreds of thousands of people gathered Monday in the Russian region of Chechnya to rally against the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, as the magazine increased its print run to an unprecedented seven million - 120 times its normal print run.

'More than 800,000 people took part in the event in the centre of Grozny,' the Russian interior ministry said. 

They marched through the streets of downtown Grozny, the capital of the predominantly Muslim region, releasing balloons and carrying posters that read 'Hands off our beloved prophet' and 'Europe has only united us'.
