New book by late Hebdo editor

THE late former editor of French weekly Charlie Hebdo takes on politicians, the media and Islamophobia as thinly-veiled racism in a posthumously published book that was completed two days before he died in France's worst terror attack in years.

Stephane Charbonnier, was one of 12 killed by gunmen in the January 7 attack against the offices of the newspaper.

The book, whose title translates as "Letter to tricksters of islamophobia who are playing the game of racists," criticises those who exploit Islamophobia for their own ends.
