France has voted to extend air strikes in Iraq against Islamic State terrorists a week after gunmen claiming to represent the group killed 17 people in Paris, including Charlie Hebdo journalists.

The vote comes as three million copies of this week's edition of the satirical magazine are set to roll off the printing presses.

It is the first issue since Said and Cherif Kouachi killed 12 people at Charlie Hebdo's offices on Wednesday 7 January.
