In what appears to be France’s deadliest terror attack in half a century, 12 people were killed and 5 seriously injured after 2 masked men stormed the offices of Paris-based satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo at around midday on Wednesday. A third suspect, 18-year-old Hamyd Mourad, the getaway driver in the brutal attack has reportedly given himself up to police. French president François Hollande has declared it as “terrorist attack”.

 

At least eight journalists, two police officers, a maintenance worker and a visitor were killed, with 11 people wounded – five of them seriosuly – said prosecutor Francois Molins. Charlie Hebdo has been repeatedly threatened for its caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad and other sketches. Despite that, this is the first time such brutal attack has been unleashed on the cartoonists.

According to witnesses, two armed and masked men walked into the headquarters of the Charlie Hebdo magazine and opened fire in the entrance hallway, killing people as they saw them. The gunmen reportedly sought out members of the newspaper’s staff by name during the rampage through the 2nd floor office, which lasted between 5 and 10 minutes. Shouting “Allahu akbar!” as they fired, the men spoke fluent, unaccented French.

A massive manhunt is underway in Paris and across France for the suspected two gunmen, brothers Cherif Kouachi, 32, and Said Kouachi, 34. All three suspects were allegedly linked to a Yemeni terrorist network. Cherif Kouachi was sentenced to 18 months in prison after being convicted of terrorism charges in 2008 for helping funnel fighters to Iraq’s insurgency. So far, a group calling itself Islamic States appeared to claim responsibility for the shooting.

France raised its terror alert system to the maximum – Attack Alert – and bolstered security with more than 800 extra soldiers to guard media offices, places of worship, transport and other sensitive areas. In the meantime, cartoonists around the world have strike back – with more cartoons in retaliation against the terrorists.
