Apple France shows support for Charlie Hebdo in wake of terrorist attack

Apple has updated its French website today to show support for French satirical publication Charlie Hebdo, whose Paris offices were subjected to a terrorist attack yesterday. If you visit the site now, the words "Je Suis Charlie," French for "I Am Charlie," are displayed on a stark black banner across the bottom of the page.

With the display of the banner, Apple joins a chorus of voices around the world in condemning the terrorist attack that saw 12 people shot dead, the BBC reports. Since yesterday, countless people have taken to Twitter to show their support with the "Je Suis Charlie" hashtag — a message that also appears on Charlie Hebdo's website.
