The French satirical newspaper whose staff was decimated in an Islamist attack will publish as scheduled next week, one of its surviving staff members told AFP on Thursday.


Charlie Hebdo will publish next Wednesday to defiantly show that "stupidity will not win," said columnist Patrick Pelloux, who is also an emergency room doctor.

He added that the remaining staff held a meeting on Thursday to discuss its future.

"It's very hard. We are all suffering, with grief, with fear, but we will do it anyway because stupidity will not win," said Pelloux.

He said that the publication would have to be put together outside Charlie Hebdo's headquarters, which were not accessible following the massacre.

"We'll do it from home, we'll make it work," Pelloux vowed.

Twelve people, including five cartoonists, were killed in Wednesday's attack that also left two policemen dead.
