Two people were stabbed and seriously wounded outside of the former location of Charlie Hebdo magazine shortly after it republished controversial comics depicting the Islamic prophet, Muhammad. Police arrested two suspects, one of whom was armed with a cleaver or machete, and are investigating the attack as an act of terrorism. Though the attack is believed to be in direct response to the comics, the victims were not employed by the magazine.

Charlie Hebdo republished the comics in remembrance of the 12 members of its staff killed in a terrorist attack on Jan. 7, 2015. The comics were reprinted on the same day that a trial of 14 people accused of assisting the attackers began. After the 2015 attack, Charlie Hebdo moved its offices to a secret location for protection.
