French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has stepped up security after receiving death threats over its front-page cartoon of a Muslim couple running naked along a beach.

"We have filed a complaint after being the target of death threats," Charlie Hebdo co-owner Eric Portheault told Le Parisien. "It does not stop,"

Among the "chilling messages, insults and anti-Semitic remarks," one warned, 'You Will Die!" according to Le Parisien.

The threats come 17 months after 10 staff members and two police officers were shot dead by Islamist terrorists who raided the publication's offices.

The latest issue, published last Wednesday, shows a man and woman with a" traditional beard and hijab running naked on the beach with the caption "The reform of Islam: Muslims loosen up," The Independent reports.

The cartoon is a commentary on the banning of burkas from the beaches along Cannes in the French Riviera.
