The magazine’s lawyer Richard Malka told French radio earlier that it was important to show that staff would “cede nothing” to extremists.

Gunmen attacked the magazine’s offices on Wednesday, killing 12 people.

Following the attack, the gunmen were heard shouting that they had “avenged the Prophet Muhammad”.

The magazine was firebombed in 2011 after publishing Muhammad cartoons.

A total of 17 people were killed in three days of terror attacks in Paris last week.
