Le Soir, a Belgian newspaper that reprinted cartoons from Charlie Hebdo mocking Islam’s prophet Mohammed, evacuated its offices Sunday after it received a bomb threat, according to its web site.

Le Soir‘s report states: “The individual who contacted the newspaper ‘Le Soir’… [said] he wanted, on behalf of the ‘extreme left,’ to stop media coverage of the attack against Charlie Hebdo, which would feed the ‘extreme right.'”
