Charlie Hebdo: 12 Dead Following Alleged Terrorist Attack At Satirical Magazine

| by Emily Smith

Gunmen attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday, killing 12 and injuring several in an apparent extremist Islamist attack against the magazine's controversial cartoons.

French President Francois Hollande stated that the shooting was without a doubt a terrorist attack. The Huffington Post noted that the attack was the deadliest in at least two decades.

Charlie Hebdo has continuously been under attack for publishing controversial caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, among other sketches. In 2011, the magazine’s offices were firebombed.
