Charlie Hebdo attack: Rush to buy new ‘survivors’ issue’
Long queues have formed at newsstands in France for the latest edition of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Five million copies are being printed – a week after Islamist gunmen murdered 12 people at its offices and five others in subsequent attacks in Paris.
The issue has angered some Muslim countries and groups by depicting the Prophet Mohammed on its front cover.
Al-Qaeda in Yemen claimed the attack on the magazine in a video purportedly from the group.
However, the video did not provide any evidence to support its claims. The group had previously welcomed the attack, without acknowledging any role in the operation.
The magazine cover shows a cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad weeping while holding a sign saying “I am Charlie”.
The gunmen are said to have used earlier publication of images of the Prophet as justification for their attack on the magazine.
