At Least 12 Dead in Shooting at Charlie Hebdo

Washington Times:

At least 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at a newspaper in Paris, the Charlie Hebdo, known for taking satirical potshots at Muslim leaders, Reuters reported.

One of the dead was a journalist; three police were also wounded, The Associated Press reported.

Reuters reported it’s the same newspaper that’s been bombed in the past for publishing cartoons about Muslim leaders.

France’s Info radio said police at the scene said another five have been injured.

“About a half an hour ago, two black-hooded men entered the building with Klashnikovs,” Benoit Bringer, a witness to the incident, told the French station. “A few minutes later, we heard lots of shots.”

The attackers escaped and an alert has been sent through the community, said Luc Poignant, an official with the SBP police union, AP reported.

UPDATE CNN:

Paris (CNN)At least 11 people were killed and four were seriously wounded in Wednesday's attack at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris, French President Francois Hollande told reporters.

"This is a terrorist attack, there is no doubt about this," he said.

• Journalists and policemen are among the victims in the attack, Hollande said. He said it would be a few hours before a definite number of injured is known.

• British Prime Minister David Cameron reacted to the deadly shooting, saying on Twitter: "The murders in Paris are sickening. We stand with the French people in the fight against terror and defending the freedom of the press."

The BBC is reporting 12 Dead, including 2 policemen, 10 injured:

12:42 - these are London time.

A Twitter campaign pledging support for the victims and the French magazine is gaining traction within moments of the first #JeSuisCharlie hashtag being posted.
