This morning, Berlin newspaper, _BZ _published this striking front page as a tribute to those who were killed in the shooting at the offices of satirical magazine, _Charlie Hebdo. The newspaper today featured 43 of the French magazine's recent front pages. _
The attack has raised a serious debate around the world regarding freedom of expression. The controversial magazine has often been in the spotlight for some of the more contentious pieces it's published. These include depictions of the Prophet Mohammed, which have in the past led to the offices being firebombed and threats to the magazine.
Speaking on 702, Editor of BZ newspaper in Berlin, Peter Hunt explained why this morning's front cover although a delicate issue, was necessary to "honour colleagues for brave fighting for press freedom over the years".
Hunt reasoned that "as a journalist I have to defend Freedom of Speech, if I don’t do things because I don’t want to offend people then I do exactly what those people who have killed Charlie Hebdo staff want".
Hunt credited his colleagues at Charlie Hedbo for their bravery over the years, saying that the cartoons printed in the BZ today were just a reprint of the work that had already been done by colleagues.
