The satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo has received death threats after it published another controversial front page which has been accused of mocking Muslims. 

Commenting on the decision to ban burkas from beaches in Cannes, the latest issue depicts a man and woman with a traditional beard and hijab running naked on the beach with the caption “The reform of Islam: Muslims loosen up”.   

The issue was published on Wednesday and the staff received a threat that a new attack was imminent via the magazine’s Facebook page, Le Parisien reported.

Officers from the BRDP branch of the Paris police said this is not the first time the magazine has been threatened since the terror attack on their offices in January 2015. 

An investigation opened by the force revealed that the magazine had seen 60 threats, insults and anti-Semitic remarks on their page in July and August. 

Eric Portheault, the co-owner of the newspaper, told Le Parisien: “We have filed a complaint with the police of the 13th arrondissement of the Paris police over the threats. 

“It never stops”.  

The magazine is still under heavy police protection after 10 staff members and two police officers were murdered when Islamist terrorists stormed an editorial meeting and opened fire.
