Today, January 7th 2015, is the darkest day of the history of the French Press : 12 massacred in Paris newspaper attack.
Ruben L. Oppenheimer – Dutch Cartoonist
At least 5 cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo magazine were killed during an islamist terrorist attack today in Paris : Cabu, Wolinski, Charb, Honoré and Tignous. 7 other people (including 2 policemen) were killed in the same attack.
Charlie Hebdo, the Paris-based weekly satirical magazine, which was founded in 1970, became famous for its daring takedowns of politicians, public figures and religious symbols of all faiths.
This is a tribute to these men killed for the right to freedom of thought.

I cried today because all these cartoonists have accompanied my life and it was as if I had lost close friends. A lot of french people cried today.
