Possible Jihadist Attack Destroys Offices of Paper that Published Mohammed Cartoon

There has been a possible jihadist attack in France earlier today. The French paper Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in a recent issue. Seemingly in response, gasoline bombs were used to destroy their offices.

No one was killed and the paper's website was also hacked. In 2005, they published another picture of Mohammed.

This came after threats:

Charb said the magazine had received several threats on Twitter and Facebook before the attack.

"This is the first time we have been physically attacked, but we won't let it get to us," he said.

Of course, this could be an impetus for the nanny states to pass new restrictions on free speech. Let's hope not.
