Muslims attack Charlie Hebdo Paris paper: At least 10 dead

At least 10 people were killed in a shooting at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical newspaper firebombed in the past after publishing cartoons joking about Muslim leaders and Muhammad.

France Info radio said police had confirmed a toll of 10 dead and five injured. The news channel quoted a witness who saw the incident from a building nearby in the heart of the French capital.

The Telegraph is reported that “Xavier Castaing, head of communications for the Paris police prefecture, has confirmed 11 deaths. Five people are critically wounded…”

“About a half an hour ago two black-hooded men entered the building with Kalashnikovs (guns),” Benoit Bringer told the station. “A few minutes later we heard lots of shots,” he said, adding that the men were then seen fleeing the building.

A police official, Luc Poignant, said he was aware of one journalist dead and several injured, including three police officers.

“It’s carnage,” Poignant told BFM TV.

A firebomb attack gutted the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo in November 2011 after it put an image of the Islamic prophet Mohammad on its cover.
