'The murderer is still at large': One year after brutal attacks, Charlie Hebdo declares itself alive


Paris: The satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, whose staff was decimated by Islamic extremists on 7 January, 2015, is running a special edition this week with a bloody God armed with a Kalashnikov on the cover and the headline: "The murderer is still at large".

In profanity-laced editorial, Laurent Sourisseau, the newspaper's director who goes by the name Riss, described the newsroom's silence moments after the two gunmen opened fire, saying that was how he knew his colleagues were dead. But Riss said the newspaper would remain alive because "never have we wanted so much to break the faces of those who dreamed of our deaths."

Seventeen people died in the attacks on Charlie Hebdo on 7 January last year and a kosher supermarket two days later. All three attackers died.
