Newspapers From All Over The World Paid Tribute To Charlie Hebdo

Newspapers from all over the world used their front page to pay tribute to those lost in the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo, a satirical French weekly. Ten journalists and two police officers were killed by gunmen who were looking to punish the paper for their depictions of the Prophet Muhammad.(Muhammad”s image is forbidden to be visually represented in some forms of Islam.

In the wake of the attack, many feared what the impact would be on the free speech so many publications enjoy. On the day after the tragic events, many front pages were filled with great sorrow for the loss of those killed. They offered a message that their freedom of speech will not be tallied among the dead.
