French President Emmanuel Macron led a sombre tribute Sunday to the 17 victims of the attacks
French President Emmanuel Macron laid a wreath in front of the former offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Sunday to mark three years of the start of the Paris attacks.
The ceremony was low-key, in keeping with requests from the families of the victims. Macron was joined by journalists from the magazine, members of his government, and the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo.
In 2006, Islamic organisations sued the newspaper under French hate speech laws for its re-publication of the Jyllands-Posten cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. The attempt was unsuccessful.
The newspaper has also published a number of caricatures of Muhammad, whose depiction is forbidden in Islam.
