French Magazine Charlie Hebdo Could Face Legal Action After Publishing Cartoon Mocking Drowned Syrian Toddler


The controversial French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo may face legal action for inciting hate crimes after publishing cartoons about drowned Syrian toddler Alan Kurdi in its latest issue on Monday.

The first cartoon shows a clown and what appears to be the toddler with a sign: “Welcome immigrants, so close to his goal. Promotion: Two children for the price of one”.

The second cartoon, “Proof that Christians walk on water” shows a man supposedly resembling Jesus walking on water as a partially submerged child says “Muslim children drown”.

Heart-rending photos of the toddler’s lifeless body washed ashore on a Turkish beach last week sparked global horror and debate on refugees.

The magazine’s cartoons sparked outrage on social media.
