Paris, Jan 10: French Police on Friday stormed the hideout of two brothers who allegedly attacked the offices of French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo on January 7, resulting in their death. Their hostages were freed, police said.
The duo died when the security forces moved in on a print works in the town of Dammartin-en-Goele, northeast of Paris, where the main suspects of the January 7 attack were holed up with their hostage. The print works, set in marsh and woodland, had been under siege since the gunmen took refuge there early on Friday after abandoning a high-speed car chase.
However, police said at least four hostages were killed in a separate siege at a Jewish supermarket in eastern Paris. The person who took the hostages at the supermarket and allegedly had links to the same Islamist outfit as the brothers, was also killed.
