PARIS (PIX11) -- Charlie Hebdo's return to newsstands Wednesday drew a large response.

People waited in line for hours Wednesday morning to get their hands on a copy. This is the first edition since 17 people -- 12 at Charlie Hebdo and five in a Jewish grocery -- were killed in last week's terror attack in Paris.

The magazine, which features a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad, quickly sold out by mid-morning. By afternoon, copies were being sold on Ebay for hundreds of dollars.

Charlie Hebdo usually prints 60,000 copies, but due to high demand, the magazine increased its print run to 5 million. The publication was also translated into six languages and sold internationally -- both which have never been done before.

The sold out paper comes the same day a top leader of Yemen's al-Qaida branch claimed responsibility for the attack on Charlie Hebdo.

Nasr al-Ansi, a top commander of Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, said the attack was in "vengeance for the prophet" and warned of more "tragedies and terror."

He did not claim responsibility for the attack on the Jewish grocery.
