First Charlie Hebdo since Paris attacks sells out in US

The latest issue of the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo has finally arrived in the United States. And it took just one hour to sell out Tuesday at a Manhattan bookstore. The French-language bookstore Albertine on Fifth Avenue got 100 copies. Customers paid $6 for the first issue printed since the Jan. 7 terrorist attack on the magazine’s staff in Paris. The two gunmen said they were avenging the prophet Muhammad – a frequent subject of ridicule in the magazine’s cartoons. The latest issue also defiantly displays Muhammad.
