PARIS: The French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo is publishing its first issue since extremists killed 12 people at its offices last week.

The newspaper Liberation hosted Charlie Hebdo staff as they prepared the new issue and is handling its special one million-copy print run in numerous languages.

Liberation published the Charlie Hebdo cover online late Monday night, ahead of the satirical magazine's publication on Wednesday.

The cartoon shows a bearded man holding a sign reading “Je suis Charlie” (“I am Charlie").

Overhead was the phrase: “Tout est Pardonne” (“All is Forgiven").

Last week's attack, regarded as the worst terrorist rampage in France in decades, followed Charlie Hebdo's publications carrying what have been widely perceived as caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him).

Some witnesses who were present at Charlie Ebdo's offices at the time of the attack had reported that the attackers at the paper's offices shouted: “We have avenged the prophet.”

Muslims believe all images of the prophet are blasphemous.
