In January 2015, two men who self-identified with Al-Qaeda opened fire in the office of Charlie Hebdo, a left-wing, anti-fascist satirical magazine based in Paris. They killed 12 people and injured 11 others. The attack set off a series of protests, and subsequent terrorist attacks put French authorities on high alert for violence.
