France, Paris, Eiffel Tower

The French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has sold over 3 million copies in the wake of the terror attacks on its offices last week.

Due to the high demand, an extra 2 million copies have been ordered to print. Charlie Hebdo is being published in five languages and for the first time will be available in over twenty different countries.

The first edition following the terrorist attack last week, in which a majority of its staff were killed, features the Prophet Mohammed on its cover. In the UK, a majority of the mainstream media have not fully shown the cover of the new edition.

There were reported queues at news kiosks across France as the edition went on sale early Wednesday morning. The magazine faces an unprecedented demand from the public. Prior to the attack, Charlie Hebdo circulated at just 66,000 copies.
