CHICAGO -- The latest issue of Charlie Hebdo magazine went on sale at 7 a.m. Friday in Chicago and Evanston.

But by 7:01 a.m., it was sold out. That's because the "Chicago-Main Newsstand" in Evanston, and "City Newsstand" in Old Irving Park only received six copies each.

The magazine is selling for $7.50.

The locations will also be doing a pre-sale for 200 additional copies that will arrive next week.

The issue is expected to sell 7 million copies worldwide, because it was published in defiance of the deadly Islamist terrorist attack on the magazine's offices in Paris January 7.
