RSF deeply shocked by attack on Charlie Hebdo


“We weep for the victims of today’s horrific attack on Charlie Hebdo, who include the cartoonists Charb, Cabu, Tignous and Wolinski and Bernard Maris,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.

“Our thoughts are with these colleagues and friends, who have been taken from us by hatred. There can be no worse attack on media freedom, and all other freedoms, than to storm into a media outlet and shoot on sight. We will continue our fight for freedom and tolerance in the face of this barbarity. We will do it for them and for all those who have fallen in defence of such fundamental values as freedom of information.”

We offer our heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this terrorist attack.
