Copies of new Charlie Hebdo sell out within ten minutes

All the copies of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo sold out within ten minutes when they went on sale in Sweden this morning, newspaper Dagens Industri reports.

They were sold online by the national chain of newsagents, Pressbyrån, who had been given 295 copies by the French publishers, but they sold out almost straight away. The huge interest caused the Pressbyrå website to crash for a short time.

Charlie Hebdo was the target of an islamist terrorist attack in Paris earlier this month. 12 people were killed in the attack.
