Defiant Charlie Hebdo depicts Prophet Muhammad on cover

The cover of the next edition of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo will show a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad, holding a sign "I am Charlie".

The slogan in French "Je suis Charlie" ("I am Charlie") was widely used following the 7 January attack on the magazine, as people sought to show their support.

Three million copies of Wednesday's edition are being printed. Normally only 60,000 are sold each week.

Charlie Hebdo's lawyer Richard Malka told France Info radio: "We will not give in. The spirit of 'I am Charlie' means the right to blaspheme."

Survivors of the massacre have been working on the magazine from the offices of the French daily newspaper Liberation.
