Bulgaria plans to extradite a Frenchman suspected of knowing or having been in touch with one of the two Islamist militants who shot dead 12 people at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo’s offices last week, prosecutors said on Monday. Using a European arrest warrant alleging that he had abducted his 3-year-old son and was likely to take him to Syria, Bulgarian police arrested Joachin on January 1 at a border checkpoint when he tried to cross into Turkey.

France’s biggest satirical weekly, “Le Canard Enchaine” said it received a gruesome death threat the day after gunmen shot dead 12 people in an attack against Charlie Hebdo magazine.

Le Canard Enchaine says in its edition being released Wednesday that an email sent to the paper on January 8 warned “It’s your turn” and threatened to slash its journalists to pieces “with an axe”.

“Given the context, surveillance was strengthened” and police have opened an investigation, the paper wrote.

Le Canard Enchaine is the country’s most popular satirical weekly, with a circulation of almost half a million compared to Charlie Hebdo’s 60,000.
