The terrorist attack by Islamic extremists in Paris on Friday were the worst in recent French history, according to the Global Research Centre. It was also the first major attack in France since the shootings at the Charlie Hebdo offices and the Kosher Market in January.

The magazine, which publishes once a week, was attacked by jihadists for its satirical cartoons of the prophet Mohammad. Founded in 1970, Charlie Hebdo has made its name mocking religion, culture and politics.

Corrinne Boer, the cartoonist for Charlie Hebdo who drew this week’s cover for the magazine, wrote on Twitter her thanks for the positive reaction to her cover.

Translation according to The Huffington Post: “Thank you for all of your messages. We put a lot of ourselves into this issue. We are leaving nothing out. #fuckthem See you tomorrow in #CharlieHebdo.”
