Authorities say no one was injured in the Sunday firebombing of a German newspaper. The arson comes days after the newspaper ran Charlie Hebdo cartoons.
Around 2 a.m. local time Sunday, the Hamburger Morgenpost reports it was the victim of an arson attack carried out by two men. The men allegedly threw rocks and then a burning object through the building's windows. The fire damaged some of the newspaper's archives, but no injuries were reported.
This is the front page for the newspaper Thursday, the day after the attack on the Charlie Hebdo office that killed 12. Three Charlie Hebdo cartoons appear on the side as the text reads, "This much freedom must be possible."
