Charlie Hebdo to print one million copies

Publication of French weekly, which usually sells about 50,000 copies, to go ahead with support of media organisations.

    The next issue of Charlie Hebdo, the French weekly magazine whose office was attacked by three armed men on Wednesday, will come out next week.

    Twelve people, including four cartoonists, were killed and 11 other people were injured in the incident.

    Charlie Hedbo usually sells about 50,000 copies, however, in response to the attack, a million copies will be printed for the next issue, with the support of other media organisations in France.

    The move is seen as a show of support for the spirit of the magazine and its right to say what it wants.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from Paris.
