French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has just published its first edition after the tragic attacks in Paris.
The cover features another drawing of the Muslim Prophet Muhammed. Is this inflammatory? Should other media and press outlets republish the cover? What is the balance between freedom of expression and exercising restraint in the immediate wake of a tragedy?
Mal Fletcher answered these questions and more in an interview with BBC Radio's Mike Parr.

Mal you are a dear friend to the church in Australia. So blessed by your compassionate voice. Jamie, Australia
I read Mal Fletcher's comment on the Jokela Shooting in Finland. He seems to be very well educated on the Finnish mentality... I got saved earlier last year & before I knew God I was in darkness & used to have same kind of thoughts this shooter had. I can only pray that God will heal this country with his Spirit.
I just wish that more people knew about your EDGES website. The world is dying to hear about such a message. Thank you! Gustave, USA
