It has now been confirmed by Charlie Hebdo’s lawyer that four of the magazine’s cartoonists were killed in the attack: Cabu, Wolinski, Charb and Tignous.
Twelve people in total including two policemen are confirmed to have been killed in the shooting.
Georges David Wolinski (28 June 1934 – 7 January 2015) was a French cartoonist and comics writer.
Wolinski was killed on 7 January 2015 in a terrorist attack on " Charlie Hebdo " along with other staff.
Charlie Hebdo is a French satirical weekly newspaper, featuring cartoons, reports, polemics, and jokes.
Wolinski was born in Tunis, French Tunisia to Jewish parents, Lola Bembaron and Siegfried Wolinski. His father was from Poland and his mother from Tunisia. After discontinuing his architecture studies in Paris, Georges Wolinski began cartooning in 1960, contributing political and erotic cartoons and comic strips to the satirical monthly " Hara-Kiri ".
During the student revolts of May 1968, Wolinski co-founded the satirical magazine " L'Enragé with Siné ". In the early 1970s, Wolinski collaborated with the comics artist Georges Pichard to create Paulette which appeared in Charlie Mensuel and provoked reactions in France during its publication. Wolinski's work has appeared in the daily newspaper Libération, the weekly Paris-Match, L'Écho des savanes and Charlie Hebdo.
Charb was the most recent editor, holding the post from 2009 until his death in the attack on the magazine's offices in 2015.
