Charle Hebdo Attack Leave 12 Dead

UPDATE: French police have published the names and photographs of two suspects wanted in Wednesday's terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris.

In a statement posted on its website, French national police ask for information on the whereabouts of two suspects: Cherif Kouachi and Said Kouachi, warning that both are potentially armed and dangerous.


Gunmen have attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people and injuring 10, French officials say.
Witnesses spoke of sustained gunfire at the office as the attackers opened fire with assault rifles before escaping.
Police have launched a major operation in the Paris area in their hunt for the attackers.
Charlie's latest tweet was a cartoon of the Islamic State militant group leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
The satirical weekly has courted controversy in the past with its irreverent take on news and current affairs.
The magazine was fire-bombed in November 2011 a day after it carried a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad.
President Francois Hollande is at the scene and is planning to hold an emergency cabinet meeting.

'Black-hooded men'

Two of those killed are police officers, France's AFP news agency reports, and five of those wounded are critically injured.
An eyewitness, Benoit Bringer, told French TV channel Itele: "Two black-hooded men entered the building with Kalashnikovs.
"A few minutes later we heard lots of shots."
The men were then seen fleeing the building.
"It's carnage," French police official Luc Poignant told another French channel, BFMTV.
Police have warned French media to be on alert and pay attention to security following the attack.

Actually they are saying 12 dead. 21 is 12 backwards or 3 times 7 equals 21. 777

Of course they can't find a lost airplane but they have caught the gunmen who by the way were wearing masks at the time. Yelling as they escaped we're Al Qaeda from Yemen.

@Driftsister: more "11" ?
First attack: Paris, "11ème arrondissement".
Seconde attack: Montrouge, south suburb of Paris, in "les Haut-de-Seine", 92; 9+2=11
Kouachi brothers was 34 and 32 years old; 34+32=6x11
