The surviving staff members of satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo have vowed to publish one million copies of the next edition despite an attack on their Paris office which left 12 people dead.

The magazine lost eight of its staff and most of its senior journalists after the attack on January 7 but the remaining workers have said that the publication will be available on a larger scale than usual next Wednesday, January 14.

The employees of the notorious magazine will continue their work at the office of Liberation, a daily French newspaper which also made the same offer after the Charlie Hebdo offices were firebombed in 2011.

The Digital Press Fund, supported by Google, has also earmarked €250,000 (£195,000) to aid the affected magazine.

Charlie Hebdo’s lawyer, Richard Malka announced that one million copies of the next edition would be published, as against the usual print run of 60,000.

“They did not kill the newspaper, contrary to what they believe,” longtime Charlie Hebdo Editorial Secretary Luce Rabbit said.

Meanwhile French police have begun a massive manhunt for suspects, Cherif and Said Kouachi and are said to be closing in on them in the Northeastern part of the country.
