FROM Sophie Pedder
Je Suis Charlie Hebdo: I Am Charlie Hebdo As the manhunt for suspected killers continues, France is assessing the consequences of yesterday’s slaughter of satirical writers and cartoonists. The magazine Charlie Hebdo was already under police protection, but the sudden attack has shocked France and the rest of the Western world. Politicians and church leaders have called for national unity, but French Muslims are reporting attacks on mosques in several parts of the country.
France's Burqa Ban Begins Today The French law that went into effect today does not use the words "women," "Muslim" or "veil," but says that it's illegal to hide the face in a public place. It was pushed hard by President Nicolas Sarkozy, even though only a small minority of the country's five million Muslim women actually wear the burqa. When Parliament passed it, there was widespread public support. Today, there was a protest outside the Notre Dame cathedral. Sophie Pedder is Paris Bureau Chief for the Economist magazine.
