17 innocent people were killed in France from 7-9 January by three Islamic terrorists. The attack started at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in Paris, in which eight journalists were executed by two terrorists. On 11 January, up to 1.6 million people attended a march in Paris to protest against terrorism and in support of free press. The exercise of free speech is a fundamental human right and a free press is essential to democracy. Estonian World grieves our French colleagues who have died for it.
