If you're looking to get your hands on the latest issue of Charlie Hebdo magazine, get ready to open your wallet ... wide.
Tuesday's edition is the first to be published since the Paris-based magazine was targeted by Islamic terrorists a week ago, in which 12 people were killed. Survivors of the attack put out the latest edition using borrowed offices.
The print run for this edition was 3 million, about 50 times the usual circulation. The magazine plans to publish 2 million more copies, to be circulated slowly over the coming weeks.
Newsstands around France sold out of the magazine before dawn, with scuffles reported at kiosks. The edition features a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad on its cover, believed to be the reason gunmen targeted Charlie Hebdo offices for their terrorist attack.
While 1,500 copies will be available at newsstands in Toronto, Vancouver, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec on Friday, many are turning to eBay to bid on a copy of the historic magazine.
