Citing security concerns, organizers of a pro-Israel rally in Amsterdam cancelled the event after meeting with police and city officials.

The rally, which was announced last month as scheduled to take place on January 11, was cancelled “because of the current situation in Paris and in coordination with the police, the municipality and security,” members of the Holland4Israel group wrote Friday on their Facebook page.

On Friday, several people were killed when an Islamist took over a kosher supermarket in eastern Paris. Police killed him when they moved in to free more than 20 hostages who survived the attack.
