11 Dead in Shooting at French Satirical Weekly's Office in Paris

Snippets
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.

Just in: Attack on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper office in Paris has left 10 dead. The BBC reports that at least two gunmen have attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

Witnesses spoke of sustained gunfire at the office as the attackers opened fire with Kalashnikov assault rifles.

The satirical weekly has courted controversy in the past with its depiction of news and current affairs. Its latest tweet was a cartoon of the Islamic State militant group leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (see pic).

At least 12 dead after shooting at Paris magazine

At least 12 people were killed in a shooting Wednesday at a French satirical news magazine which has published cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad, police told reporters.

Local news media reported that two police officers were among those killed. Currently, the number of injured people is thought to be around 10, of which five are critically wounded, according to Reuters.

France's terror alert was raised to the highest level after the shooting, President Francois Hollande told local media. He confirmed that several terrorist attacks had been foiled by security sources over recent weeks.

Hollande later tweeted: "No barbaric act will ever shoot down press freedom. We are a united country that can react and unite."

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.
