TERROR ATTACK AT PARIS MAGAZINE LEAVES 12 DEAD; GUNMAN ESCAPE

At least 12 were killed and 10 wounded in Paris on Wednesday in an apparent terror attack on the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Armed gunmen wearing black hoods stormed the offices of the publication in a suburb of the city before firing automatic weapons in a scene police described as "carnage," local media reported. The attackers were heard shouting "Allahu Akbar," an Islamic phrase that means "God is great."
Charlie Hebdo is known for its caricatures of the prophet Mohammed and other controversial sketches and has frequently drawn condemnation from Muslims. 
French Europe 1 radio said one of the attackers was heard shouting that the "prophet was avenged."
President Francois Hollande, appearing at the scene immediately following the incident, said the shooting was "undoubtedly a terrorist attack" and said several other terror attacks had been thwarted in recent weeks.
Xavier Castaing, head of communications for the Paris police prefecture, confirmed the deaths. The attack may be the deadliest on French soil since a wave of train bombings in 1995.
Eyewitness images taken at the time of the attack show two men apparently abandoning a car. Luc Poignant, an official of the SBP police union, said the attackers left in a waiting car and later switched to another vehicle. A massive manhunt is now underway across the French capital to find the perpetrators, who may still be heavily armed.
