Charlie Hebdo returned to print on Wednesday, six weeks after it published a special edition issue on Jan. 14.

The French satirical magazine now has a subscriber base 50 times greater than before militants attacked its Paris office last month, killing 12 people. Before the attack, the magazine had 8,000 subscribers. Now, it has 200,000.
