Shooting at Charlie Hebdo HQ in Paris
Several people have been killed by armed gunmen in a shooting at the Paris offices of a satirical magazine, according to French media reports.It should be clearer than ever now that France is under siege by jihad, and this was bound to happen. But is the leftist government now in charge going to take effective action? There's no telling if they will.
Shooting was heard at the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine known for publishing controversial cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in 2012.
"Several men in black cagoules were heard to shout 'the Prophet has been avenged'", wrote Pierre de Cossette, a broadcast journalist with Europe1 News.
"I think there are casualties," said the publication's cartoonist, Renaud Luzier.
The magazine is based in Paris's 11th arrondissement.
Update: latest reports (via Hot Air) tell that at least 11 people were murdered:
Eleven people were killed in a terror attack Wednesday at a French satirical news magazine which has published cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad. France raised its national alert system to its highest level following the attack at Charlie Hebdo in central Paris.It will be far more difficult if they don't crack down very hard on these Islamofascists, including a ban on more mosques and cutting back on unscreened immigration.
French President Francois Hollande told reporters that 11 people had been killed and four others were critically injured. “We will find the people who did this,” Hollande said. “France is today shocked by this terrorist attack.”
Hollande said French officials had foiled multiple terror attacks in recent weeks and would response to the threat of terrorism “firmly but with international support.”
“This is a difficult moment,” he added.
Some of the victims include an editor and 3 cartoonists at the magazine. Condolences to their families.
