Charlie Hebdo plans 3 million run of new issue

Paris – The surviving staff members of Charlie Hebdo are putting out an unprecedented 3 million copies of its upcoming issue.

According to the newspaper Liberation, which loaned out office space to the satirical weekly whose staff was decimated at the beginning of three days of terror attacks last Wednesday, the run will come out tomorrow.

Late yesterday, Liberation posted an image of Charlie Hebdo’s next cover.

It featured a cartoon of a bearded man in a turban with a tear streaming down his cheek, and holding a sign: “Je Suis Charlie” (I Am Charlie). Overhead was the phrase: “All is forgiven.”

French media interpreted that as meaning that Muhammad is forgiving the cartoonists for lampooning him.

A total of 17 victims and all three gunmen died in three days of bloodshed.
