Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Luz to quit after next issue
Luz, the French cartoonist behind some of the controversial drawings of the Prophet Mohamed that made Charlie Hebdo a target for jihadists, has said the next issue of the magazine will be his last.
"Yet another lesson in cartoons is happening, and just a week ahead of my retirement," he wrote jokingly in the latest issue of the satirical magazine, published Wednesday.
He was referring to a new controversy that blew up over Charlie Hebdo's depiction of Aylan, the three-year-old Syrian boy who was found drowned on a Turkish beach and who has become a symbol of Europe's refugee crisis.
