Terrorists Kill 12 In Mag Attack

Hooded gunmen stormed the Paris offices of a weekly satirical magazine known for lampooning radical Islam, killing at least 12 people, including two police officers in the worst militant attack on French soil in decades. One of the men was captured on video outside the building waving his arms and shouting "Allah!". After dozens of shots rang out, two assailants were seen calmly leaving the scene. One police officer was seen being shot as he lay wounded. A police union official said the assailants - Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said there were three - remained at liberty and there were fears of further attacks/Reuters. More here. (2012 AP file photo: publishing director Stephane Charbonnier displays front page of his newspaper. He was among those killed in terrorist attack today.)
