NEW YORK, January 10. /TASS/. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula directed the attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, Associated Press said on Friday, citing a member of the group.

The group said the attack on the French magazine was "revenge for the honor" of Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

On Wednesday morning, three masked gunmen targeted an office of the Paris-based satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine, which had earlier published caricature images of the Prophet Muhammed. As a result of the shooting, 12 people were killed, including 10 staff members and two policemen. Another 11 people were wounded. This was the deadliest attack in France in half a century. On Friday, the terrorists were killed in a special operation.
