• BREAKING: Charlie Hebdo Suspects Surrounded In Paris

    Early Thursday it was reported that one of the three French nationals being sought by police for the attack on Charlie Hebdo, had turned himself in.

    Now, the two remaining Paris terror suspects have been cornered and the French police are engaged in two separate hostage situations.

    One hostage situation is unfolding in a kosher market in Paris.

    “I heard a shot ring out and then the police arrived immediately on the scene,” witness Eric Dadone-Vaillant told the LA Times. “I saw a man down on the ground.”

    Meanwhile, French police have cornered Cherif and Said Kouachi, the brothers suspected of carrying out the massacre on the satirical magazine and killing a French policeman.

    At around 9:00 a.m. ET, French officials released information on two suspects: Amedy Coulibaly, and his girlfriend, Hayat Boumeddiene. French authorities haven’t said whether they are the two holding the hostages in the kosher market. However, they are suspects in last night’s shooting of a French policewoman. And CNN is reporting that the two suspects were affliated with the Kouachi brothers via an “Iraqi connection.”

    Here’s a mugshot of two of the suspects released via French officials:

    Just after 10:00 a.m. ET, the Paris Public Prosecutor’s Office confirmed to ABC News that the two hostage situations are related. The Agence France-Presse has also confirmed that at least two hostages have been killed in a standoff with police.

    ***UPDATE***

    The Charlie Hebdo terrorists are dead!!!

    According to USA, “Heavily armed police mounted simultaneous attacks on two hostage-standoffs 35 miles apart on Friday, killing two terror suspects holed up in a warehouse north of Paris and a gunman who had seized hostages at a kosher supermarket in the capital.”

    And indeed Gerard Araud, the French ambassador to the United States, has confirmed the deaths via his government Twitter account.

    The two Charlie Hebdo shooting suspects were on the run for two days before being surrounded and killed by French authorities on Friday.
