Charlie Hebdo staffer says magazine now getting much-needed financial support

MONTREAL — A journalist who works for Charlie Hebdo says the satirical news magazine is getting much-needed financial support — but it comes at a heavy price.

Zineb El-Rhazoui says firm financial footing came at the cost of a dozen colleagues killed in the terrorist attack on the publication’s Paris office earlier this month.

El-Rhazoui says the magazine was poor and its editor even sought financial help from French President Francois Hollande a few weeks before he was killed.

El-Rhazoui says the publication has received millions of euros since, but losing editor Stephane Charbonnier and the others was too high a cost.

She escaped the massacre because she was in Morocco when the Jan. 7 attack took place.
