NEW YORK (PIX11) — One week after a pair of terrorists stormed the Paris offices of a satirical magazine, the surviving staff will publish their next issue — right on schedule.

Charlie Hebdo’s Wednesday edition will feature another Mohammed cartoon. The prophet, whose depiction is forbidden in Islamic culture, is holding a sign that reads “Je suis Charlie” under the headline “Tout est Pardonne,” or “All is forgiven.”

“Because the pen is always above barbarism… Because freedom is a universal right… Because you support us…,” the Charlie Hebdo homepage reads, saying the next edition will be out Wednesday.

On Jan. 7, two brothers burst into the magazine’s offices and opened fire, killing 12. That led to a days-long search for the terrorists who were ultimately killed after a double hostage siege that left four innocent people dead.

Long-targeted for their cartoons that often poke fun at Islam and Islamic extremists, Charlie Hebdo was firebombed in 2011. Often, their cartoons feature the Prophet Muhammad.

PIX11 News has chosen not to publish or air the upcoming Charlie Hebdo cover, however several news outlets have, including New York Magazine.
