Following the attack in Paris, the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie, or "I am Charlie" quickly made the rounds on social media, along with a black-gray-and-white image of the words.

Masked gunmen attacked the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo today, killing 12 people. Four of the publication’s best-known editorial cartoonists, including the magazine’s editor, are reportedly among the dead. In recent years Charlie Hebdo has published stories and cartoons — ncluding depictions of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad — that offended various religious groups. We talk with cartoonist Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher about ongoing controversies involving religion, satire and politics around the world.
