The shooting of 12, including an editor and cartoonist, at the offices of a satirical newspaper in Paris, France, has shaken people around the world, but has struck a particular chord with editorial cartoonists.
On Jan. 7, after the news of the shooting at the Charlie Hebdo offices broke, many of those cartoonists responded in the best way they knew how: With their own cartoons sharing their feelings about the incident.

Some Twitter users found the last cartoon by Charb, the cartoonist killed in the attack, and shared it in his memory.

Charb and the others killed in the attack were memorialized in a cartoon by Zep.
A cartoon circulating widely today is a one from the New Yorker, published previously in a story about trying to be politically correct and sensitive to religion in cartoons.
