Paris:Charlie Hebdo Suspects Killed in Police Raid


Kouachi brothers dead; third hostage-taker killed in separate police raid elsewhere

The brothers sought in this week's deadly Paris massacre have been killed in a police raid, reports the BBC. Security forces launched an assault on the building where Said and Cherif Kouachi were holed up outside Paris and killed the pair while freeing the hostage they were holding. One official tells the AP that the two came out shooting; earlier, they had said they wanted to die like martyrs. A second, related siege at a kosher market in Paris also is over, though four hostages were reportedly killed, reports Reuters. Police believe the hostages were killed before police attacked the market. Four other hostages suffered serious injuries and 15 were rescued unhurt.

CNN was reporting on TV that one of the hostage-takers, a female, had escaped. Her male accomplice was killed in the raid. In the latter siege, allies of the Kouachi brothers—believed to be a male, Amedy Coulibaly, 32, and a female, Hayat Boumeddiene, 26—took several people hostage and demanded the Kouachi brothers' release. Both also are suspected of killing a female police officer in Paris yesterday. The two raids were launched simultaneously, reports the New York Times. The Kouachi brothers had been tracked down to the small town of Dammartin-en-Goele, near Charles de Gaulle Airport.
