67. That link shows and names Merkel, Abbas, and Netanyahu

and also shows Ibrahim Boubacar Keita (Mali), Donald Tusk (European Council president, from Poland), and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, so I'm not sure what your point was meant to be.

A wider shot also shows Cameron from the UK: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jan/11/paris-world-leaders-solidarity-rally-terror-attacks

The point is, those leaders did march: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-30769682

MSNBC says it was from doing too many US Sunday morning chat shows:

As world leaders and millions of French marchers gathered for what became France’s largest rally in the country’s history following a series of terror attacks in the capital, some in the United States criticized the Obama administration and members of Congress for their absence at the massive event.

More that 70 foreign delegates were slated to attend the Unity rally in Paris, including 44 heads of state, according to French station BFM. Leaders from UK, Germany, Jordan, Israel, and Palestinian authority marched with arms locked at the event along with defense ministers in a crowd of millions. Attorney General Eric Holder, who was set to represent the U.S., was nowhere to be seen.

Leaders from around the world Sunday joined hundreds of thousands of marchers in Paris for a rally in a show of solidarity.
The White House quickly put out a statement that Holder’s schedule, which included interviews with four of America’s five major Sunday news shows, did not allow him to participate. The whereabouts of President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry were also questioned.
