Je suis Charlie. Je ne suis pas Charlie.

Another day the World stood still, and recoiled in repulsion as detestable acts of extreme violence were perpetrated by extremists against innocents. The theatre of the latest Danse Macabre was the head office of the French weekly satirical newspaper, Charlie Hebdo, in Paris. At approximately 11:30 CET two masked men armed with Kalashnikov rifles, a shotgun, and an RPG 7 attacked the newspaper’s headquarters, resulting in the deaths of 12 people and the wounding of 11 others.

Two of the deceased were police officers, one of which was tasked with guarding the offices and its staff.
