Slain Charlie Hebdo editor Stephane Charbonnier had featured on a list of people being proposed as potential targets in an al-Qaeda magazine in 2013.

Chillingly, the hitlist has reappeared on Twitter following the attack on the magazine’s Paris newsroom, with a red X imposed over Charbonnier’s face.

The list was originally published in a 2013 edition of Inspire, al-Qaeda’s leading English-speaking magazine, under the heading “Wanted, dead or alive for crimes against Islam.”

The updated list began surfacing on Twitter within hours of the Paris attack, shared by Twitter accounts commonly used for al-Qaeda propaganda.

A total of 11 names appear on the latest version of the list, some of whom have had increased security detailing since the attack.

Author Salman Rushdie, Danish journalist Flemming Rose and Dutch politician and leader of the Party for Freedom Geert Wilders (spelled Girt on the hit list) are just some of the featured headshots.

Rushdie, who had a fatwa placed on him after the publication of his 1989 book The Satanic Verses, released a statement following the attack on Wednesday.
