Many around the world are still in shock after
Wednesday's terrorist attack at the offices of Charlie Hebdo
, a satirical weekly in Paris, France. Ten journalists and two police officers are confirmed dead. Ryan Broderick at Buzzfeed
compiled 23 cartoons created by artists around the world who are mourning and paying tribute to the journalists who were killed in the attack. Here are seven of those cartoons:
“Ducks will always fly higher than guns.” (Ducks in French is also a slang term for newspaper.)
Francisco J. Olea
“Grab your weapons mates.”
Here are two cartoons chosen from vox.com
“The world has become so serious that humor is a risky profession.”
"Today I am an editorial cartoonist. Today I am a journalist. Today I draw for Charlie Hebdo.")
A favorite by ZEP, found on Poynter.org
Here is some of what's happening around the world.
“Cabu, Wolinski, Tignous, Charb
A death stupid and mean…
God: Cabu? For once, you’re early.”
