A day after the latest issue of Charlie Hebdo sold out within hours in France, Sky News in the United Kingdom cut away from a guest who attempted to show a Charlie Hebdo cartoon on-air.  The surviving staff of Charlie Hebdo put out the weekly magazine on time with a run of 3 million copies, over 50 times its usual circulation of 60,000.
