    Paris: At least 11 people, including two policemen, were killed when gunmen armed with Kalashnikovs and a rocket-launcher opened fire in the offices of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday, Paris prosecutors said.

    Deputy Mayor of Paris Bruno Julliard earlier said "six people are seriously injured", including a policeman. It was not clear whether these now figured among the dead.

    French President Francois Hollande was on his way to the scene of the shooting and called an emergency cabinet meeting, the presidency said.

    A source close to the investigation said two men "armed with a Kalashnikov and a rocket-launcher" stormed the building in central Paris and "fire was exchanged with security forces."

    The source said gunmen had hijacked a car and knocked over a pedestrian as he sped away.

    I hope they find these vermin and impale their severed heads on stakes in the middle of Paris.

    It's officially a TERROR ATTACK.

    No confirmed news about Terrorists if they escaped or killed in retaliation by French forces.

    RIP

    hope these guys are nabbed quickly before they cause more damage!
    Has any group taken responsibility?

    Edit: okay I see, they seem like ISIS sympathizers.

    Terrorists allegedly shouted "Prophet avenged" after the attack... looks like attack was response to Prophet cartoons published in the magazine.

    Intelligence failure. French secret service needs to liquidate them before they strike. If they are French citizen and ISIS returnee, you are looking at a terrible problem.

    France cannot do too much remember riots a few years ago? Muslims make up a significant
    Majority 15 percent or more if you discriminate there will be more attacks.
