Charlie Hebdo published caricatures of the prophet Mohammed and other controversial sketches irritating Muslims. The magazine Charlie Hebdo had received threats in the past and was under police protection. The cartoonist behind the weekly publication’s provocative images is dead. President Francois Hollande was at the scene and declared that the shooting was “undoubtedly a terrorist attack”. He promised justice. The terrorists escaped. They fled in a stolen car. “We’ve avenged the honor of the prophet!” the killers shouted, according to witnesses. “The people responsible for this are now hunted men. They will be hunted for as long as it takes. They will be arrested and face justice for their crime,” the President Hollande said. Schools in the area were closed and newspaper offices, shopping centers, museums and stations were placed under police protection. A strong international reaction is ongoing after this criminal action.
