One year after Charlie Hebdo was attacked by Islamist extremists, the magazine has released a striking anniversary edition with a cover featuring a cartoon of God as a terrorist. Seventeen people died in three days of attacks targeting the magazine's offices, police and a kosher store last January. This week, President Francois Hollande led memorials to the victims of the shootings.

One year on from the attacks, here are 10 of the most controversial Charlie Hebdo front covers. Discretion is advised as the images may be deemed offensive.
