The first issue of the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, to be published since a jihadist attack at its Paris office in which 12 people, including nine of its journalists, were killed, sold out within minutes across France on Wednesday, various media reported.

The new issue features a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed on its cover, holding a “Je Suis Charlie” (I’m Charlie) sign under the headline “All is forgiven”.

It has already angered Muslim groups in some countries that oppose depictions of Islam’s prophet and God.

The magazine printed one million copies of its “survivors issue”, with another two million to be released through the week.
