The Paris prosecutor's office has opened an investigation into death threats against the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, which was the target of an extremist attack in 2015.

Office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said Wednesday that the investigation for "written death threats" follows about a dozen postings in July and August on the paper's Facebook page, which carried a cover cartoon mocking Muslims at the beach.
