The trial of satirical weekly “Charlie Hebdo” began Wednesday, February 7. The paper was sued by several Muslim organizations for having published the infamous Danish caricatures of the prophet Mohammed in February 2006. According to the plaintiffs, the paper committed “a deliberate act of aggression intended to insult Muslims”. The suit was brought against two of Charlie Hebdo’s twelve cartoonists. The defense attorneys have called Francois Bayrou and Francois Hollande as witnesses.
