Nearly 80 people gathered in Boston's Copley Square for a candlelight vigil against violence, marking one month since 150 children and teachers were killed at a school in Pakistan by Taliban gunmen.

Muslims and people of other faiths held candles Friday evening and waved signs saying ``not in my name'' and ``I stand against Shia genocide.'' Similar rallies were held in cities around the world.

The Dec. 16 terrorist attack at the Army Public School in Peshawar was one of the worst in Pakistan. People at Friday's rally also spoke out against the Jan. 7 killings of 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris.

People at the vigil said they wanted to send a message that those who kill in the name of Islam don't represent most Muslims.
