Charlie Hebdo is a secular left, French, satirical weekly newspaper that often features: generally vulgar cartoons (often with stylized cartoon versions of homosexual acts on the cover), articles and profane jokes that "celebrate" freedom of speech. It also frequently engages in blasphemy - especially in relation to Christianity and Islam. It was first published from 1970 to 1981 and again since 1992.

Terrorist attacks

In November 2011, Muslim jihad terrorists fire-bombed the magazine's offices in Paris. At the same time, its website was hacked.

On the 7th of January 2015, three French-born males armed with fully-automatic AK-47s murdered, execution-style, 10 of the staff and 2 policemen and wounded other ten people. Well known socialist cartoonists Charb, Cabu, Honoré, Tignous and Wolinski were all killed.[1]
