Join the discussion about Charlie Hebdo - closed

12 dead at the hands of gunmen. 

Quote:
 

Charlie Hebdo editor Stephane Charbonnier, 47, had received death threats in the past and was living under police protection.

French media have named the three other cartoonists killed in the attack as Cabu, Tignous and Wolinski. The attack took place during the magazine's daily editorial meeting.

At least seven people were wounded in the attack, with several in critical condition.

The satirical weekly has courted controversy in the past with its irreverent take on news and current affairs. It was fire-bombed in November 2011 a day after it carried a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad.

Will Syriza take power in Greece?

Here's an interesting interview on TeleSUR English with Costa Isychos, head of SYRIZA's Foreign Policy and Defense Department on the likelihood of elections in January 2015. Syriza is likely to take power in Greece and represents a new type of multi-tendency party bringing different traditions of the the Left together and growing through the social movements. Syriza has strong ties to left-wing governments in Latin America. Its victory may be the first step to a post-austerity and post-neo-liberal Europe.
