Hebdo’s ancestry

London Mihir Bose: The debate about whether Charlie Hebdo’s journalists went too far needs to consider how the magazine came into being. It got its present name after its predecessor, L’Hebdo Hara-Kiri, was banned by the French government in November 1970. This was because after the death of Charles de Gaulle in his village of Colombey, the magazine published a front cover which read: Ball Tragique A Colombey 1 Mort (Tragic Ball at Colombey, 1 Dead). After the ban the magazine renamed itself Charlie Hebdo, a title which was ­itself an impertinent reference to De Gaulle.
