Four of the magazine's well-known cartoonists, including its editor, were among those killed, as well as two police officers. The terrorists, who managed to escape the scene, were heard shouting "We have avenged the Prophet Muhammad" and "God is Great" in Arabic.
If the past is any indication, however, it appears this isn't a random act of terrorism. The weekly satirical magazine has long been notorious for its irreverent take on news and current affairs. In fact, their office was once firebombed after it published a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad. Unfortunately, yesterday's attack proved to be the most fatal attack.
In response to this horrific event, cartoonists all over the world voiced their opinions by coming up with their own cartoon strips. Here are some of them:
