Charlie Hebdo


Charlie Hebdo is a French satirical weekly newspaper which is published every Wednesday. The magazine features cartoons, reports, polemics, caricatures and jokes. It appeared from 1969 to 1981, when it folded, and was resurrected in 1992. The current editor is Stephane Charbonnier. Special editions of the magazine are issued on an unscheduled basis.

In September 2012, the magazine published cartoons of Prophet Mohammad in nude triggering outrage from the Muslim community. The magazine hit the stands on September 19, 2012 despite the government urging them not to publish the magazine. The French Government has defended the magazine's right of free speech. They closed their premises in 20 countries temporarily as a precautionary measure.
