Tunisian demonstrators gesture while holding up signs in solidarity with French newspaper Charlie Hebdo during a rally at the French embassy in Tunis on January 8, 2015, a day after two gunmen killed 12 people in an Islamist attack at Charlie Hebdo’s editorial office in Paris. The massacre, the country’s bloodiest attack in half a century, triggered poignant and spontaneous demonstrations of solidarity around the world. Charlie Hebdo is famed for its irreverent views of religion and its decision to publish controversial cartoons of the prophet Mohammed. The poster reads in Arabic in red “No to terrorism.” AFP PHOTO/ SOFIENE HAMDAOUI
