Some Muslims regard any depiction — even positive ones — of their prophet as blasphemous. The two gunmen who killed 12 people at the magazine's offices last Wednesday claimed they had "avenged the Prophet Mohammed" as they left the scene.
The new issue, which will be released Wednesday, will also contain other images of Prophet Muhammad.
"We will not give in," Richard Malka, the magazine's lawyer, told France Info radio about the plan to print the cartoons. "The spirit of 'I am Charlie' means the right to blaspheme."
