Charlie Hebdo Mocks Dead Syrian Boy, Aylan Kurdi

The French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo has released the latest issue of their magazine featuring the drowned Syrian boy, Aylan Kurdi on its front cover. The magazine known for his controversial content was attacked eight months ago by Muslim extremist killing 12 people in its Paris office, after it featured a cartoon mocking the Prophet Muhammed.


The death of Aylan Kurdi, who was fleeing with his family from the Syria civil war was shared all around the world, alerting the government and gives public support to the refugees. The Charlie Hebdo who had claimed that its freedom of speech cannot be altered had also steered public anger to themselves, the same public that had supported them eight months ago during the attack in their Paris office.

The new front-page of the satirical magazine shows the dead Aylan Kurdi, with a translation over his body that says "So near his goal"  and shows the dead boy body facing the sand and another sign posted near the dead body, showing a children's clown with another translation that says "Promo! 2 kids menus for the price of one".

Another cartoon that was drawn also shows a cartoon of drowning boy, with legs up in water, and an image that is supposed to be Jesus walking on water, and has a caption;

      Proof that Europe is Christian. Christians walk on water - Muslim children sink."


The images were drawn by artist, Laurent “Riss” Sourisseau. The political cartoonist has had to be chaperoned at all times by armed, plain-clothed police since the attack on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters
