In France, the trial has begun of over a dozen people accused of being accomplices in a series of attacks that killed 17 people in and around Paris over three days in January 2015. The attacks began when two French Algerian brothers stormed the offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, killing 11 people at the paper. On the following day, another gunman killed four Jewish men at a kosher supermarket. All three of the main suspects were killed. Charlie Hebdo was targeted because of its history of printing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad. Ahead of the trial, the newspaper reprinted a number of the cartoons.
