A year after the Islamist deadly assaults on the Paris offices of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, the magazine is marking the attacks' one-year anniversary (January 7) with ceremonies that will take place under heavy security in Paris.

The three-day attacks left many of the mag's top editors dead, including three gunmen.

Since the attacks took place, "Je Suis Charlie" became a worldwide slogan-gone-viral in support of Paris. 

While commemorative plaques will be unveiled on Tuesday at the various sites of the January attacks, French rock giant Johnny Hallyday will pay tribute to the millions who marched on the streets of French cities in support of "Charlie," by performing a song called "A Sunday in January" on the Sunday following the January attacks.

And if news coverage of the attacks wasn't sufficient enough, Netflix will be airing a "Je suis Charlie" docu-feature detailing the horrid events on January 7, 2016.

The documentary was licensed by Paris-based Pyramide International and directed by Daniel and Emmanuel Leconte.

"The documentary features interviews with former Hebdo cartoonist Cabu, the paper's former editor-in-chief Charb, plus video from street demonstrations post-attack and expert analysis," according to Relax News.
