#JeSuisCharlie

Charlie Hebdo is a French satirical weekly newspaper, featuring cartoons, reports, polemics, and jokes. Irreverent and stridently non-conformist in tone, the publication is strongly anti-religious and left-wing, publishing articles on the extreme right, Catholicism, Islam, Judaism, politics, culture, etc. The magazine is published every Wednesday, with special editions issued on an unscheduled basis.

Due to controversial Muhammad-themed cartoons published in 2011, the magazine has experienced two terrorist attacks. A firebombing in 2011, and another shooting attack yesterday on Wednesday January 7, 2015. Twelve people were killed, in the attack by three young male terrorists armed with Kalashnikov's.
