"Charlie Hebdo" is a French satirical weekly magazine, published in Paris since 1992. In 2006, it was among the few publications which reprinted Muhammad caricatures first seen in the Danish paper "Jyllands-Posten."
The magazine became the target of threats and attacks believed to be linked to its controversial handling of religious content. In Novemer 2011, its offices were fire-bombed. In January 2015, two gun-toting Islamists attacked the "Charlie Hebdo" headquarters in Paris, killing editor-in-chief Stéphane Charbonnier along with several contributors.
