Charlie Hebdo to publish next edition on Feb. 25

PARIS - The French Charlie Hebdo magazine will publish its second edition after the deadly attacks on its Paris offices on Feb. 25, one of the magazine's journalists said Monday.

"Finally. A bit more patience, but Charlie Hebdo will come out on February 25 at all good kiosks," Laurent Leger said in a Twitter post.

Twelve people were killed on Jan. 7, when two masked gunmen attacked the offices of the magazine, which is known for printing controversial material, including derogatory cartoons of Prophet Muhammad in 2006 and 2012.

The magazine again printed cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad in the aftermath of the Paris attacks.

The weekly usually sells 30,000 copies per week, but has sold millions of copies of its first issue after the attack.

The magazine’s chief editor, Gerard Biard, said last month that there would "probably not" be a cartoon depicting Prophet Muhammad in the next edition.
