    French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo will publish its first regular issue on Wednesday, more than a month after two Islamist gunmen staged a massacre at its office, local media reported Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The office of Charlie Hebdo, known for its satirical depictions of political and religious figures, including the Prophet Muhammad, was attacked in early January. Twelve people, including the editor-in-chief, were killed.

    A week after the deadly shooting, the magazine published the so-called "survivors" issue," but since then no other publications have been made.

    The cover of the new Charlie Hebdo's issue features ex-French president Nicolas Sarkozy, leader of the far-right National Front Party Marine Le Pen, a terrorists and Pope Francis, according to France 24.

    "Here we go again," a statement on the cover says.

    Some 2.5 million copies of Charlie Hebdo's new issue will be available.
