This outrageous attack on Charlie Hebdo is so pointless

Have your say

What happened in Paris this week was outrageous.

I’m practically speechless about the terrorist attack on the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which left 12 people dead.

The whole thing just seems so pointless and all it has achieved is to increase racial tension in the world.

That people died is truly heart-breaking. It was a ruthless attack and the worst example of man’s inhumanity to man.

It demonstrated that the attackers had zero regard for life.

Whether you agree or disagree with the views expressed by the magazine and the cartoons it featured, it can never warrant such an appalling act of terrorism.

I just hope they catch those responsible.
