Charlie Hebdo’s chief editor since 2009, Stephane Charbonnier — known as Charb — was on an al Qaeda hit list, according to a 2013 report in Slate. “This is a satirical paper produced by left-wingers and when I say left-wingers that goes all the way from anarchists to communists to Greens, Socialists and the rest. Above all it is a secular and atheist newspaper,” Charb told Reuters in 2012.
