As promised, it was business as usual this week at French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. From their new temporary office at French newspaper Liberation, an eight-page edition of the weekly magazine was created.
On the front cover is the prophet Muhammad looking sad and holding a sign saying ‘Je suis Charlie’. Above him is “Tout est pardonne” which translates as “All is forgiven”.
Speaking on the Today programme, mayor of London Boris Johnson defended the choice of front cover: “You cannot have a march through the streets of Paris attended by 46 world leaders, 4 million people, climaxing with a shout of ‘We are not afraid’ and then not print the central object of contention,” he said.
