One day after gunmen with Kalishnikovs attacked the Paris offices of satirical paper Charlie Hebdo Wednesday, killing 12 and injuring 10, the remaining staff at the paper announced that they will release an issue next week. "Stupidity will not win," columnist Patrick Pelloux told the AFP.
The newspaper hopes to publish one million copies of this issue, up from the 60,000 it runs in an average week, according to the Guardian. Next week's issue will also be half as long, down from its normal sixteen pages to eight pages.
Pelloux spoke with the AFP, saying, "It's very hard. We are all suffering, with grief, with fear, but we will do it anyway because stupidity will not win."
The two main suspects in the attack on the Charlie headquarters, Said and Chérif Kouachi, reportedly robbed a gas station 50 miles northeast of Paris on Thursday. The third suspect, 18-year-old Hamyd Mourad, turned himself into police early Thursday morning.
