UPDATE: Near-simultaneous raids by French police Friday evening at locations 25 miles apart took out the Islamist brothers behind Wednesday’s massacre at a Paris satirical magazine, and a cop-killing crony who had seized hostages at a Paris grocery on their behalf, but also left at least four hostages dead, according to authorities and reports from the scene, Fox News reports. Police were hunting a suspect who may have escaped from the deli. For more: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/01/09/paris-terror-attack-suspects-reportedly-steal-car-take-hostage-in-northeast/
New York Daily News: The terrorist brothers suspected in the Charlie Hebdo massacre barricaded themselves inside a warehouse with a hostage Wednesday, just hours before a suspected cop killer murdered two and held five people at gunpoint inside a Paris deli, French media reported.
The two hostage situations and the Thursday killing of a French police officer are all related, police said.
Brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi stormed into a printing company’s warehouse, northeast of Paris, Friday after they led police on a chase through the Paris area, cops said.
The two, accused of slaughtering 12 at the French magazine Wednesday, demanded that the workers leave. They have reportedly taken a 26-year-old man hostage.
Breitbart reports two people have been killed at the deli, which is a Jewish kosher deli. There reportedly is a white female accomplice there, Breitbart reports, citing French press agency AFP.
