French magazine at centre of terror attacks depicts Prophet Muhammad

The cover of the latest edition of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has been published in French media, and it depicts the Prophet Muhammad.

The cover shows the Prophet holding a sign reading “I am Charlie”, below the words “all is forgiven”.

The magazine's lawyer Richard Malka told French radio earlier that it was important to show that staff would “cede nothing” to extremists.

Gunmen attacked the magazine's offices last Wednesday, killing 12 people.

Following the attack, the gunmen were heard shouting that they had “avenged the Prophet Muhammad”.

The magazine was firebombed in 2011 after publishing Muhammad cartoons.

A total of 17 people were killed in three days of terror attacks in Paris last week.
