Cartoonists have taken to social media to post their reactions to the Paris shooting in which assailants targeted the French weekly Charlie Hebdo’s office, killing 12 people.

Carlos Lattuff, Washington Post’s Ann Telnaes and French London-based illustrator Lucille Clerc were among the dozens who posted in tribute to those killed, which included four of the magazine’s cartoonists and editors.

Additionally, the hashtag “Je suis Charlie” or “ I am Charlie” went viral on social media following the attack. #JeSuisCHarlie trended on Twitter as supporters flooded social media with messages of support and condolences.
