Demonstrators in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil poured into the streets on Wednesday night to demonstrate in support of freedom of speech and expression following the shooting deaths of 12 people at a satirical magazine in Paris earlier in the day.

The demonstrations came after news spread around the world that hooded attackers stormed the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a weekly known for lampooning Islam and other religions, in the most deadly militant attack on French soil in decades.

Some of France's top cartoonists were killed in the assault along with two police officers. A massive manhunt remained underway after the suspects escaped by car after the attack.
