Attack on Freedom

Post by Kitkat on Thu 8 Jan 2015 - 10:59

A sombre, grim and reflective set of national newspapers greets the UK on Thursday.

The facts of the terrorist attack on the Parisian offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo are reproduced everywhere.

Three gunmen killed 12 people and wounded 11 after bursting into the offices of the publication, which had been firebombed in the past and been the subject of continued threats after cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed were published. At the time of writing, it is unclear if all the suspected gunmen are still on the loose.

Have these cowardly monsters won?  .....
Have they heck!

How do the cartoonists react to these murders, apparently justified by their perpetrators by their outrage at a series of cartoons?

Matt in the Daily Telegraph shows two heavily armed militants hesitating outside the Charlie Hebdo offices.

"Be careful, they might have pens," one tells the other.
