Charlie Hebdo hits back in aftermath of attack with defiant new front cover

As the world mourns the deaths of those caught up in last week’s tragic and despicable attack on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters, the French magazine has hit back with a defiant new front cover and a strong back to business message.

The latest cover features a picture of the prophet Muhammad holding a sign with ‘Je suis Charlie’ written on it, as well as the words: ‘Tout est pardonne’ which translates into ‘All is forgiven’.

Surviving columnist Zineb El Rhazoui, who worked on the new issue, told the BBC: “We don’t feel any hate to them. We know that the struggle is not with them as people, but the struggle is with an ideology.”
