Cartoonists across the world condemned the terror attack at the Charlie Hebdo office on Wednesday that left 12, including the editor and several other cartoonists, dead.
The satire magazine has been known for its tongue-in-cheek cartoons, and has been in the line of fire ever since it published a caricature of Porphet Muhammad in 2012.
The attack is said to be incited by the several cartoons published by the magazine in the past, and even by a recent tweet of a cartoon caricaturing ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Cartoonists expressed support and grief over the horrific attack through their pens, and many of the cartoons are being circulated widely on social media.
Here are some of the powerful cartoons that came out following the Charlie Hebdo terror attack.
