France is reeling from the massacre at the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Facts are still coming in and the investigation is ongoing, but the scale and nature of the attack already make it a huge global story. We're devoting the show to it, starting with the BBC's Hugh Scofield in Paris, and then Laure Mandeville of the French newspaper Le Figaro. We'll also examine the security situation in France, the state of satire and free speech around the world, and the threat of violence that goes with it.
