  4. ‘Je Suis Charlie’

    #JeSuisCharlie is among the hashtags on Twitter this morning. «Standing with journalists everywhere.» (@carinakolodny) | «Journalists must now stand together to send the message that such murderous attempts to silence us will not stand.» (Committee to Protect Journalists) | «This terrorist attack marks a black day in the history of France.» (Reporters Without Borders) | «Cannot stop the chills, an office I walked past everyday, its journalists, the police officers, their lives ending so.» (@lahnabee)

  5. ‘Laughing at blasphemy’

    From 2012, more on Paris’ satirical magazine. (The New Yorker) | «The French newspaper Charlie Hebdo’s staple is to be provocative — poking fun at popes, presidents as well as the Prophet Muhammad.» (Associated Press) | «Fight intimidation with controversy: Charlie Hebdo’s response to critics» (The Guardian)

  6. The magazine was firebombed in 2011

    It renamed itself «Sharia Hebdo» after an Islamist party was elected in Tunisia. (Poynter) | Charlie Hebdo «is part of a venerable tradition in French journalism going back to the scandal sheets that denounced Marie-Antoinette in the run-up to the French Revolution.» (BBC)
