Charlie Hebdo will print 1 million copies in response to terrorist attack

The world is still in shock with the attack on the french satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo that killed 12 people. In response, next week's edition will be its largest ever, with 1 million printed copies - instead of the regular 50 thousand - thanks to the help of the government, other newspapers and Google.

With over 1.5 million euros pledged, Charlie Hebdo will not only be able to print these historical 1 million copies, but will assure it can continue running in the near future.

One might not even like or find the type of satirical content they print funny, but the simple thought that some people think they have the right to silence them (by killing them!) is absurd beyond reason. I just wonder of the people behind this attack think they've accomplished their goals (even though some politicians will certainly try and play these events to their own advantage) considering they've helped it become a worldwide phenomena that will be remembered for generations to come.

Strange world we live in, where drawing some cartoons might trigger people to go into a killing spree in the name of "something something".
