Muslims on edge after Paris terrorist attack on satirical magazine
by Aida Alami, Angela Waters, and Elizabeth Bryant
A horrific attack on a satirical magazine that mocked Islam left 12 people dead Wednesday (Jan. 7) and put the Muslim community on edge.
The hunt is now on for the assailants, two or three masked men who witnesses and police say opened fire with automatic weapons inside the office of French weekly Charlie Hebdo.
"People are exploiting this one way or another," said Fateh Kimouche, 38, the founder of Al Kanz, a prominent French Muslim blog. "The terrorists didn't distinguish what faith their victims were from. ... I just found out that one of the cops killed, his name was Ahmed. Even Muslims aren't safe."
