The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is outraged and saddened by the gruesome attacks on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Twelve people were murdered and others injured in the magazine's offices in Paris by masked terrorists.
"We exist to expose acts of barbarism—and it's terrifying when the press is the target of such acts," said ICFJ President Joyce Barnathan. "Freedom of the press cannot and will not be silenced by the barrel of a gun."
ICFJ mourns for its fallen colleagues.
