French terrorism authorities are investigating a stabbing of two people outside the former offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris, and two suspects have been arrested, authorities said.

The two brothers involved in the 2015 attack targeted Charlie Hebdo because they believed the newspaper blasphemed Islam by publishing the same Muhammad caricatures. Charlie Hebdo lost 12 employees in an al-Qaida attack in 2015 by French-born extremists who had criticized the prophet cartoons.
