Despite an unprecedented print run of 3million - it normally sells around 60,000 - that has since been extended to 5million, many newsagents had early sold out by 7am, according to The Independent's man in Paris, John Lichfield.People queue at a newspaper kiosk in Paris (Picture: Getty)
Today's edition is the first to be printed since the massacre at the magazine's offices last week in which 12 people died.
The magazine is being called the "survivors' edition" - which features an image of the Prophet Mohamed on the front cover - and is being distributed in French, English, Italian, Spanish, Turkish and Arabic.A sign explaining a "stock shortage" of Charlie Hebdo at a Paris newsagent (Picture: AP)
