Arson attack at German paper that ran Charlie Hebdo cartoons.
January 11, 2015 3:42 AM

This is going to get much worse before it gets better. Ugh:

Berlin (AFP) - A German newspaper in the northern port city of Hamburg that reprinted Mohammed cartoons from the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo was the target of an arson attack early Sunday, police said.

"Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window," a police spokesman told AFP. "Two rooms on lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly."

The regional tabloid daily, the Hamburger Morgenpost, had splashed three Charlie Hebdo cartoons on its front page after the massacre at the Paris publication, running the headline "This much freedom must be possible!"

It's probably only a matter of time until something like this happens here. But we must always stay strong and fight for freedom of speech. Deadly bullying like this must only be met with a strong response. Unfortunately.
