Charlie Hebdo debuts in Germany with Merkel on the cover

IANS  |  Berlin 

The first German edition of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo was published on Thursday and featured a caricature of Chancellor Angela Merkel on the cover.

The head of government is shown lying on a platform at a garage looking miserable while a mechanic gets ready to fit her with a new exhaust pipe, Efe news agency reported.

The image was not only a reference to her running for chancellor for a fourth term after 11 years in power but also to the Volkswagen scandal.

Around 200,000 copies were published of the 16-page magazine and the pages are full of colorful cartoons with the texts translated into German.

The launch of the German edition of the magazine came a few weeks before the second anniversary of the attack against the magazine's Paris offices, which left 12 dead including some of it's most iconic cartoonists.
