French President Francois Hollande has insisted Charlie Hebdo and its values will survive, after the new edition of the satirical weekly sold out in hours.

Mr Hollande said, that “Charlie Hebdo is alive and will live on,”.Millions more copies of the magazine are being printed because of demand.

It comes a week after Islamist gunmen murdered 12 people at its offices and five others in subsequent attacks. The new edition has angered some Muslims by depicting the Prophet Muhammad.

The cartoon shows the Prophet weeping while holding a sign saying “I am Charlie”, and below the headline “All is forgiven”.

“I am Charlie” emerged as a message of support for both the magazine and free speech following the attacks that started on 7 January.
