A terror attack has killed at least 12 people at the offices of French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday morning.
Among the dead are acclaimed French cartoonist Jean Cabut, editor-in-chief Stéphane Charbonnier, cartoonists Georg Wolinski, Bernard Verlag and two police officers. The newspaper housed some of France’s most acclaimed cartoonists.
Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins held a press conference at 12:11 p.m. ET, saying the gunmen stormed into the newspaper’s offices shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and “the prophet has been revenged,” targeting specific journalists first. He also revealed the gunmen escaped in a getaway car and hijacked a second car.
