    A French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, on Monday dedicated its drawing of the day to the deadly terror attacks that hit the French capital last Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Late on Friday, extremists launched a series of near-simultaneous attacks on several venues across Paris, killing some 130 people and injuring over 350.

    In the cartoon, ghosts can be seen wearing stereotypical French mustache and berets and holding French bread. The caption says, "The French resume a normal life."

    Earlier in November, the magazine condemned the attacks as violence that contributes to the totalitarian Islamist ideology that threatens democratic and republican values.

    Charlie Hebdo is known for publishing controversial caricatures. On January 7, the Paris office of the magazine, located not far from the Bataclan hall, was attacked by Islamist gunmen who killed 12 people and wounded 11 after Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
