PARIS, France – A week after the deadly terrorist attack at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris, the satirical magazine was back on the streets with a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed on its cover.

The magazine was sold out at many newsstands around Paris, even though the publisher printed 3 million copies instead of the usual 60,000.

The plan now is to print another 2 million because of the high demand.

As expected, reaction was mixed to this latest in a series of satirical covers.

Omer El-Hamdoon is president of the Muslim Association of London. "I know that they're probably publishing this cartoon to send a message to terrorists and say, 'Look. We are not going to be intimidated,' and that's fine . . . but at the same time, it would be nice if they had shown to be more sensitive to the feelings of Muslims."

And speaking of sensitivity, Al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula is taking credit for last week’s attacks that killed 17 people.

In a new video posted on social media web sites, they say it was revenge for the way Charlie Hebdo mocked Mohammed, hinting that the attack was in the works for several years.

Here in the US, expect more security at the airports. New measures include random searches of passengers and luggage at the gate even after passengers have gone through security checkpoints.

The price of living in a world where people will massacre other people for being insensitive.
