BOSTON (AP) _ A makeshift memorial for victims of the Paris terrorist attacks is growing outside the French Consulate in Boston.

Some people left flowers on Saturday. One man also left a note saying, ``We are all France. A grateful USA remembers,'' according to television reports.

Boston Police were also keeping watch outside the consulate, located at St. James Avenue.

At least 127 people died in Friday night's gun-and-bombing rampages in Paris. The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility.

Massachusetts Sen. Edward J. Markley released a statement condemning the violence, saying ``we must rise to the defense of Paris, France and all those who value human life.''             

Boston and state police said Friday night they've increased patrols throughout the city and at the statehouse following news of the Paris attacks.
