Charlie Hebdo to be Available in Iceland

Two hundred copies of the latest issue of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo are expected to arrive in Iceland next week. The magazine will be sold in bookstore Penninn Eymundsson, probably starting on Tuesday.

The magazine, which is usually printed in 60,000 copies, was printed in five million copies last week and distributed around the world. The first print run was sold out in two hours. The magazine has not been available in Iceland before, ruv.is reports.

The latest issue of Charlie Hebdo, containing caricatures of Prophet Mohammed, is dedicated to the journalists who were murdered by terrorists in the magazine’s office in Paris two weeks ago. A vigil was held in Iceland to show solidarity with the French nation.
