Charlie Hebdo writer may lose job amid infighting
A columnist for French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, which was targeted in a deadly jihadist attack four months ago, has been warned she may be given the boot for "serious misconduct" amid heightened tensions in the newsroom.
In a letter obtained by broadcaster France Info and dated May 13th, journalist Zineb El Rhazoui was told by Charlie Hebdo's human resources to immediately leave her post ahead of a meeting scheduled for later this month and where her potential dismissal will be discussed.
The letter stated El Rhazoui, who has worked for the magazine since 2011, had committed "serious misconduct," but did not give any further details.
