Reaction Mixed in Russia to Paris Attacks

  • Daniel Schearf

There has been mixed reaction in Russia in the aftermath of the deadly attack in Paris on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. While the Russian government and public have condemned the attacks, some have questioned the limits of free speech while others have pushed conspiracy theories. Russia's Muslim leaders have denounced the attackers, but they also have called caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad a “sin of provocation." VOA's Daniel Schearf reports from Moscow.
