Charlie Hebdo, The French satirical magazine, was petro bombed last night. The BBC reports that the offices were destroyed a day after the magazine announced the Prophet Muhammad would be its editor-in-chief in the next issue and ran a caricature of the Prophet. The issue was supposed to celebrate the victory of the recent Tunisian elections.
The edition of the paper published on Wednesday was called Charia Hebdo – a play on the Islamic word sharia.
The cover shows Muhammad saying: “100 lashes if you are not dying of laughter”.
Inside, there is an editorial, attributed to the Prophet Muhammad, and more cartoons – one showing the Prophet with a clown’s red nose.
