The two brothers suspected of attacking the offices of Paris-based newspaper, Charlie Hebdo and shooting down 12 people have been killed, reports say.
Gunshots were heard at the Dammartin-en-Goële factory (north-central France) where the brothers, Said and Cherif Kouachi held a 26-year-old man hostage. Reports say the man has been freed and the brothers have been killed.
The two terror suspects had been surrounded at the print works for several hours. They took refuge in the building with a hostage after being forced off the road into Paris by a police roadblock. Earlier in the day they broke cover from an area northeast of the capital and stole a car, before heading towards Paris. A police chase took place and they were forced off the road close to the city’s outskirts.
