French Newspaper Firebombed

The Paris office of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo was firebombed early Wednesday, one day after the paper named the Prophet Muhammad the “editor-in-chief” of the latest issue and rechristened itself “Sharia Hebdo” to “celebrate” the victory of Tunisia’s Islamist party Ennahda. The attackers threw a single Molotov cocktail into the office. "We no longer have a newspaper,” said the magazine’s editor in chief, who is known as Charb. “All our equipment has been destroyed or has melted." He said, however, that the staff will do everything it can to put out another issue next week. No one was injured in the attack, and police are looking for two suspects spotted near the scene.
