PM Netanyahu sends heartfelt letter to France

In the wake of the terrorist attack on the Paris headquarters of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, resulting in the deaths of 12 people and leaving 10 others wounded, five critical, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent this letter to Francois Hollande, president of the French Republic, with words of condolences for the loss of life and wishes for swift healing of the injured.

While further details of the attack on the offices are still sketchy, witnesses said the assailants knew exactly whom to target at the magazine, which has published a series of satirical cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad, which may have precipitated the violent act.
