"French police officials say they have identified three men as suspects in a deadly attack against newspaper offices that killed 12 people and shook the nation.
. . . 

It was the deadliest attack in France in half a century.

. . . 

University of Kansas Associate Dean for International and Comparative Law Raj Bhala said that this attack can affect American communities by people misunderstanding the attacks and backlashing.

'If people (Americans) wrongly misunderstood that these killers were representing authentic Shari'a teaching, which they're not, and started acting untowardly towards people of other faiths including Islam, so extremism can beget extremism and that's what we don't want to see,' Bahala said."
