Charlie Hebdo will not be silenced by terror attacks.

The satirical magazine that was the site of the Paris Terror attack where 12 people were killed, including four of their own cartoonists, will publish an issue this week at an estimated record three million copies.

WOW. This is absolutely heroic yet a totally crazy story.

at least 12 dead paris shooting charlie hebdo

This is absolutely horrible and completely heartbreaking.

Today in Paris, France there was a devastating shooting at the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that has left at least 12 dead.

The attack, now being labeled a 'terrorist operation' by President François Hollande, is France's deadliest terror attack in twenty years.

Among those dead are two French policeman and famed French cartoonists, known by their pen names: Cabu, Tignous, Wolinski, and Charb (who is also the magazine's publisher).

The Associated Press is reporting that there were THREE gunmen who carried out the attack after a press conference with French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, not two as previously thought, and that they're all still on the loose. They also were supposedly shouting "Allahu akbar" while shooting.

Reporters at the scene of the crime quotes a policeman who said:

Here's what one officer of the law said:
