The editor of Charlie Hebdo believes the world has become less tolerant of the French satirical newspaper's black humor but he staunchly defends the right to offend, two years after militant gunmen killed many of its staff. Charlie Hebdo marked the grim anniversary in typical style with a front-cover cartoon showing a laughing man staring down the barrel of a militant's AK-47 rifle with the caption: "2017, at last, the light at the end of the tunnel". That was partly a reference to a protest from President Vladimir Putin over a cartoon Charlie Hebdo published in December after dozens of members of a Red Army choir were killed in a plane crash.Amid the soul-searching in the aftermath of the attack, Charlie Hebdo made millions from the sales of special editions and used some of the proceeds to launch a German-language edition last year.
