Seven people have been arrested in the aftermath of a massacre at the Charlie Hebdo weekly satirical newspaper headquarters in Paris, France, but two main suspects accused of killing 12 are still at large.
Cherif Kouachi and his brother Said Kouachi are believed to be the two men responsible for murdering 12 people yesterday in Paris. Cherif served 18 months in prison on charges of criminal association with a terrorist organization in 2005 and was part of an Islamist cell group enlisting French nationals to go to Iraq and fight Americans in the country.
The alleged driver of the getaway car in the attack turned himself in to police and is fully cooperating with authorities. Hamyd Mourad, 18, gave himself up and is helping authorities identify those associated with the murders. As a result, the Kouachi brothers have been located to be somewhere in northern France but the two are "armed and dangerous," with plenty of weapons, according to authorities. more >>
