Newspapers around the world have joined in expressing solidarity for the cause of press freedom following the killing of several journalists of the French magazine, Charlie Hebdo, in an assassination attack.

Eight journalists including the editor-in-chief of the publication, were killed by Islamic terrorists allegedly over a cartoon printed in the magazine, which the killers believed was offensive to the prophet Mohammed.
