After the attack on the French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo that left 12 dead and five injured, Twitter comments are pouring in from around the world.

Many take the form of one of the magazine’s specialties, cartoons.

(Translation: All my heart with Charlie Hebdo)

A common message is that the pen is still mightier than the gun.

(Translation: “Weapon of mass destruction… the idiots!”)

As of 12:30pm, more than 2,600 tweets with the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie were being posted each minute.

(Translation: “It’s ink that should be flowing. Not blood”)

Some muse about the staffers’ status in the afterlife.

(Translation: The idiots…)

Others remind the world of Charlie Hebdo’s own resilience in the face of prior attacks.
