    Agree 100%. This wasn't an Islamaphobe mag (even if it was the crime can't be justified). They took the p*ss out of everyone. They did satire. It just happened that Islam along with heaps of other subjects was involved.

    I kind of admire their conviction, refusing to bow down to those that wanted to silence them. No one had to like their cartoons. Hey, even be offended if you want. But murdering 11 innocent people bc their sketches offended your sensibilities? Nope sorry

    Ta... Terrible. TV is saying it isn't linked to the first shooting but it's a bloody bad coincidence then

    They have located the 2 oldest gunmen on Thursday morning. Near a forest at the north of Paris.

    I hope they get it, and alive at that.

    Police is convinced they are getting support from an outside source. That they got hidden somewhere for the night.

    The 3d gunmen, the youngest one, who went to the police on his known has been formerly identified as one of the attackers.
    It's confusing as yesterday a lot of noise on twitter was saying that he couldn't be involved as he was in highschool at the attack time and that could be testified by his classmates etc.

    Also the pope has declared he was praying for the victim of the attack. The Pope is very regularly drawn and not in a very positive light on the front page of the magazine. Goes to show that their is no line and even people who find the drawings offensive respect freedom of speech.
