(On 7 January 2015, terrorists attacked French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo’s office, killing 12 people. This article from The Quint’s archives marks the one-year anniversary of the attack and the resilience of French people in the face of it.)

A special edition of the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, marking a year since an attack on its offices, went on sale.

Seventeen people died at Charlie Hebdo, and at a kosher supermarket two days later.

The widow of Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Georges Wolinski expressed anger toward the authorities, insisting she did not understand how such an attack could have taken place “at the offices of a satirical newspaper considered for several years to be a sensitive site.”

Charlie Hebdo journalists were among the first victims of a string of attacks by Islamic fundamentalists in France last year.
