The office of a German newspaper that printed Charlie Hebdo cartoons was the target of an arson attack early this morning. Vandals threw rocks at the headquarters of the Hamburg Morgenpost (MOPO), which reprinted cartoons from the satirical magazine at the centre of the terrorist attacks in Paris last week.
Two men who were 'behaving suspiciously' in the area have been arrested by police and German state security have already begun an investigation. The newspaper said on their website that some of the files in the building had been burned after an incendiary device had been thrown into the cellar.
No one was in the building at the time and there were no reports of injuries. The newspaper said early on Sunday that 'smoke is still in the air' from the attacks. But whether the arson attack was connected to the Charlie Hebdo cartoons is still under investigation, the paper added.
On Saturday, the brothers who killed 12 people at the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday were finally killed.
