Newseum displays new defiant issue of Charlie Hebdo

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Newseum is displaying the defiant new issue of the Parisian satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

As millions of copies of the issue sold out before dawn Wednesday in Paris, it went on display in front of the journalism museum in Washington, D.C.

The issue, which depicts a tearful Prophet Muhammad, joins 80 issues of newspaper front pages from around the world printed for public display every day outside the Newseum.

The core of the newspaper's staff was killed a week ago when gunmen stormed its offices, killing 12 people and igniting three days of bloodshed around Paris. The attacks ended Friday when security forces killed all three gunmen involved.

The new issue of Charlie Hebdo was put out by surviving employees working in borrowed offices.
