    [This is the same magazine that was constantly threatened for satires that angered Jihadists. I am afraid this might be another terrorist incident.]


    "The satirical weekly has courted controversy in the past with its take on news and current affairs.

    Its latest tweet was a cartoon of the Islamic State militant group leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

    ...The magazine was fire-bombed in November 2011 a day after it carried a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad."

    France has had some terrible incidents recently, with cars running into innocents, and now this. Very sad.

    He says 11 people are dead and four are critically injured; at least 40 were “saved”.

    The numbers of victims is likely to rise, he says.

    The security level in Paris has been raised. Police are hunting the perpetrators.

    BEAKING: France: At least 11 killed in shootings at satirical newspaper office

    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.

    Latest news is 12 dead including 2 LE.
    This is a satirical paper which published the "Allah cartoons" a few years back.

    Paris shooting: at least 12 people killed, around 10 injured, at offices of French satirical newspaper

    At least 12 people have been killed by gunmen armed with Kalashnikovs and a rocket-launcher, after they opened fire in the offices of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, Paris prosecutors say.

    French police say two police officers are among those killed.

    At least 10 were also injured in the shooting at the Paris offices of the newspaper that has been firebombed in the past after it published cartoons in 2011 joking about Muslim leaders.

    Deputy Mayor of Paris Bruno Julliard earlier said "six people are seriously injured", including a policeman.

    Union official Rocco Contento described the scene inside the offices as "carnage".

    French president Francois Hollande headed to the scene of the attack and the government said it was raising France's security level to the highest notch.

    "This is a terrorist attack, there is no doubt about it," Mr Hollande said.

    Of course it was a terrorist attack, and in my own heart I know who and why, even though the "who(s)", that pulled the trigger, will probably be a nonentity(ies).

    Two masked men, reportedly armed with guns and a rocket-propelled grenade, shouted "we have avenged the prophet" as they attacked.

    Fox News Network is reporting that the cartoonist who drew the "Allah" cartoon for this publication is among the wounded, hospitalized in critical condition.

    UK Prime Minister David Cameron said in a tweet: "The murders in Paris are sickening. We stand with the French people in the fight against terror and defending the freedom of the press."
