French Magazine Firebombed for Publishing "Sharia Edition"

This morning the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo were destroyed as two firebombs were thrown through its windows. The attack came as its "Sharia edition" was set to be released. Fortunately, there was no loss of life and no injuries were reported.

The "Sharia edition" featured the Prophet Mohammed as a guest editor with commentary on the recent Tunisian elections in which Islamists claimed victory.
