The French immigration critical party Front National and its leader Marine Le Pen has received thousands of new followers on Facebook after the terror attacks. But despite the popularity it is not invited to attend a major national commemoration on Sunday - as the only party.
Front National is a party that achieves increasingly more support in France. At the local and EU-elections in May last year the party won a total of 25 percent of the votes, and thus became France's largest party.
What started as a protest party has grown so big that they are now fighting for power in the country. But the party's opposition to immigration, abortion, equality for gays and the desire to introduce the death penalty, has led many French to you keep away.
But after yesterday's brutal terrorist attacks, many French have decided to give the party a chance. More than18,000 new Facebook likes Marine Le Pen received yesterday. On ordinary days she gets around 700 new likes. Also the party has experienced a large increase on social media.
In comparison, President François Hollande received 10,000 new likes and former President Nicolas Sarkozy's party has gained 1,000 new likes since the terrorist attack yesterday.
