AJC, a global Jewish advocacy organization, said it was "appalled" by Wednesday's terrorist attack in Paris that left 12 people dead and several others injured, after hooded gunmen stormed the offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine.

Calling the shooting "Islamic terrorism," the director of the Jewish group's Paris branch, Simone Rodan-Benzaquen, issued a statement condemning the attack – which he said was directed both at the magazine and at the democratic values it represents – and the "heinous world view" of the men behind it.

The perpetrators of the attack still remain at large.
