German Paper Attacked After Republishing Charlie Hebdo Cartoons

Rocks and an incendiary device were thrown through the window of a German paper in Hamburg early Sunday after the paper republished cartoons by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo.

The Hamburger Morgenpost, posted front page, featured three Charlie Hebdo cartoons with the words, “This much freedom must be possible!” after the recent massacre in Paris.

A police spokesman reported on the extent of the damage to the AFP.

“Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window. Two rooms on lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly and no one was hurt.”
