Charlie Hebdo suspends release of new issues


French magazine "Charlie Hebdo" suspends the release of its new issues for a few weeks, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the publication. French media reported that the management made this decision in order to release 7 million copies of issues published after the attack on the terrorists.

Addressing to the readers, the editorial board thanked everyone for their support and sympathy. "We will not forget you, and the magazine will return to newsstands in the coming weeks," reads the statement.

January 7-9 in France, in Paris, there was conducted a series of terrorist attacks, which killed 16 people. The terrorist group Al-Qaeda took responsibility for the attack.

The new issue of the magazine Charlie Hebdo released after the shooting appeared with weeping Prophet Muhammad on the cover with the inscription Tout est pardonné (Everything is forgiven – Ed.). The editorial staff transferred all the proceeds from the sale of the magazine to the bereaved families of the staff.

There was a lot of rush around this issue – many readers even booked the copies of the magazine at newsstands. After the three million circulation was sold out, it was decided to reprint another 2 million copies.
