Charlie Hebdo criticised for calling Brussels attacks tip of Islam 'iceberg'
The editors of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo are facing criticism for an article linking the Brussels terror attacks to ordinary Muslims in Europe.
In an editorial entitled "How did we end up here?" the magazine which suffered its own terror attack on 7 January 2015 gave its response to the bombings in Belgium two weeks ago which killed 32 people.
"In reality, the attacks are merely the visible part of a very large iceberg indeed," the article suggests, before describing a terror attack as the "end of a philosophical line" for a society which tolerates women wearing burqas or bakers not offering ham or bacon.
