Charlie Hebdo flies off shelves as Al-Qaeda claims attack


Charlie Hebdo made a defiant return with a new issue that sold out across France in record time, as Al-Qaeda posted a video claiming last week's deadly attack on its cartoonists.

The magazine once again featured the Prophet Mohammed on its cover - but with a tear in his eye, holding a "Je Suis Charlie" sign under the headline "All is forgiven".

Around 700,000 copies were released and sold yesterday as part of a print run that will eventually total five million.
