Touching 'All is Forgiven' Charlie Hebdo cover released

Three million copies of the special “survivors’ edition” are being printed and will be made available in 25 countries.

THIS IS THE cover of the first issue of Charlie Hebdo since the attack on its offices in Paris by two gunmen during an editorial meeting last week.

There were 12 people killed in the attack by brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi, including the magazine’s editor and a number of well-known cartoonists.

The poignant cover of the “survivors’ edition” of the magazine, which hits the shelves Wednesday, shows the Prophet Mohammed holding a ‘Je Suis Charlie’ sign. This phrase has become symbolic of the incident, with people all across the world displaying it on signs, t-shirts and stickers in marches over the last few days.

The cover also contains the words: ‘All is forgiven’.

Three million copies of the special edition are being printed and will be made available in 25 countries, translated into 16 languages because of international demand.

Speaking on French radio this morning, the magazine’s lawyer, Richard Malka, said staff will “cede nothing” to extremists seeking to silence them. “We will not give in. The spirit of ‘I am Charlie’ means the right to blaspheme,” Reuters quotes Malka of saying.
