French weekly firebombed after it portrays Mohammad
by Brian Love
A firebomb attack gutted the headquarters of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday after it put an image of the Prophet Mohammad on its cover.
This week's edition shows a cartoon of Mohammad and a speech bubble with the words: "100 lashes if you don't die of laughter." It has the headline "Charia Hebdo," in a reference to Muslim sharia law, and says Mohammad guest-edited the issue.
Charlie Hebdo's website on Wednesday appeared to have been hacked and showed images of a mosque with the message "no God but Allah."
