Paris: Three million copies of Wednesday's first post-attack issue of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo will be made available on newsstands, distributors MLP said today.

MLP had initially planned to print one million copies of an issue currently being put together by survivors of last week's shooting at the magazine's offices, but said demand from France and abroad has been huge.

The original paper printed at 60,000 copies a week, selling 30,000.
