After suffering a truly barbaric terrorist attack in Paris, France yesterday on January 7th, satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo will go forward with publishing an issue next week.

They are hoping to publish upwards of one million copies of the issue, which is a MUCH higher number from the 60,000 they normally publish weekly.
In addition to this, they will also cut down the length of the issue from sixteen pages — it's normal amount — to eight pages.
Charlie Hebdo columnist Patrick Pollux spoke out about the decision, saying:
