07 Jan Charlie Hebdo: For the Freedom of Journalistic Expression
Earlier today, in a violent attack against freedom of expression, two masked gunmen stormed the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. In a hail of bullets, twelve people, including the editor-in-chief Stephane “Charb” Charbonnier, and prominent cartoonists Jean “Cabu” Cabut, Bernard “Tignous” Verlhac and Georges Wolinski, as well as other staffers and two police officers, were killed. Several Charlie Hebdo staffers are in critical condition in local hospitals. Our hearts go out to the families of those hurt during this assassination.
