Suspected accomplices go on trial for Paris attacks — Charlie Hebdo

Suspected accomplices go on trial for Paris attacks — Charlie Hebdo

Fourteen suspects face charges including financing terrorism, membership in a terrorist organisation and supplying weapons to the attackers that killed 12 people in 2015.

All three travelled to areas of Syria under Islamic State's control days before the attacks and may be dead.

Charlie Hebdo has a place reserved at the trial, according to a Justice Ministry video of the preparations for the landmark legal process. However, it has been said in the editorial that after the attack in 2015, people have been demanding to publish those cartoons of the Prophet. All the reasons that could be opposed to us relate only to political or journalistic cowardice. They killed 11 people inside with automatic gunfire, including the top editor and some of its leading cartoonists, then killed a police officer on the street as they made their getaway.

Zineb el Rhazoui, 38, who quit her job as a journalist at Charlie Hebdo two years after the attack, said she hoped her slain colleagues would be remembered as gentle, cultured human beings. The gunmen, who claimed to have carried the attack out in the name of al-Qaeda, were eventually killed.

The three assailants were killed by police, but suggestions that those on trial were only minor players have been rubbished by prosecutors and relatives of the victims.

People look at flowers and messages near the statue at the Place de la Republique in Paris, France on January 6, 2016. "Reproducing these cartoons this week of the opening of the January 2015 terrorist attacks seemed essential to us".

Charlie Hebdo republished on Wednesday a series of cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad, including one of him in a bomb-shaped turban, that stirred outrage in the Muslim world when they were first published almost a decade before the attacks.

Today's cover of Charlie Hebdo features the same cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad that was the motive for the terrorist attack on the weekly's newsroom. A manhunt by French authorities then ensued, with the brothers killed by police two days later.

At the same time, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday that "he will not comment on any decision to republish the cartoon in the satirical magazine".

"Rare are those who, five years later, dare oppose the demands that are still so pressing from religions in general, and some in particular", wrote Sourisseau, who is also known as Riss. They told the judge they would answer the court's questions.

On Jan. 7, 2015, two armed men stormed the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 staffers and guests, as well as a policeman outside. Before holding the Jewish men hostage at the supermarket, he had shot dead a policewoman in a separate incident. Eleven days later, the unlikely hero was granted French citizenship.

Di believe na say like 200 pipo wey bring legal action, plaintiffs, dey di trial and survivors of di attacks dey expected to testify, France RFI broadcaster report. Leaders from around the world joined millions of people who poured into Paris' enormous Republique plaza and other gathering spots in France bearing defiant signs that read "I am Charlie".

The trial, which will run for 10 weeks and be filmed throughout, is likely to evoke painful memories.
