Rome: Italy called a meeting of its "anti-terrorism" committee Wednesday to examine possible threats following an attack on the offices of French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo that killed 12 people.

The Strategic Anti-terrorism Analysis Committee, "made up of experts in anti-terrorism from the police force and intelligence services, will closely examine the terrorist threat in light of the grave attack," the interior ministry said in a statement.

Interior Minister Angelino Alfano called the meeting after two or three heavily armed gunmen stormed the offices of the Charlie Hebdo weekly, the focus of several attacks since publishing cartoons of the prophet Mohammed in the mid-2000s.
