Charlie Hebdo: Defiant magazine staff start work on new edition

By Staff Reporter

The surviving staff of Charlie Hebdo arrived at the offices of the French newspaper Liberation in a show of defiance yesterday.

Under heavy police guard, the team immediately began putting together next week's edition, which will be published on Wednesday. With the support of the rest of the French media industry, the survivors plan to print a million copies.

The profits from the edition will go to the families of the victims of the attack at the satirical magazine. The French media united to support the edition, which will be only eight pages, and is likely to have a controversial cover.

Luce Lapin, one of the magazine's staff, said that the terrorists had failed to silence Charlie Hebdo.

"We will publish next week and the weeks after that. It is certain. They will not kill the paper."

There are only five uninjured cartoonists left, including Renald Luzier (42), who missed the shooting because he overslept.
