The publishers of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo announced on Saturday that it would put its next issue on hold while its employees recover after losing 12 co-workers to a terror attack early in January.

The newspaper’s post attack issue sold nearly seven million copies as people the world over rushed to newsstands to support the paper after two Islamists broke into its Paris headquarters on January 7 and murdered 12 employees.

Charlie Hebdo spokesman Michel Salion promised that “there will be a future” for the newspaper but noted that colleagues needed to recover from the shock of the murders.

The murders spawned supporters all across the globe to adopt the slogan “I Am Charlie.”
