All eyes were on Paris, France yesterday, where a shooting took place at French satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo” (Charlie Weekly).  There were conflicting reports related to the status of the suspected murderers, but it has been confirmed that at least 12 people were killed at the magazine HQ, including two police officers.

Charlie Hebdo is well known for courting controversy with satirical attacks on political and religious leaders of all faiths and has published numerous cartoons ridiculing the Prophet Mohammad.
