Islamists Assassinate 12 French Satirists

So THIS is how World War III starts!

Charlie Hebdo Attack

The masked, black-clad men with assault rifles stormed the offices near Paris’ Bastille monument in the Wednesday noontime attack on the publication, which had long drawn condemnation and threats — it was firebombed in 2011 — for its depictions of Islam, although it also satirized other religions and political figures.

Shouting “Allahu akbar!” as they fired, the men used fluent, unaccented French as they called out the names of specific employees. [New York Times]
