BREAKING: ‘We want to DIE AS MARTYRS’ – Paris Terrorists Found Holding Female Hostage
There are reports that the murderers of the French cartoonists have been found and cornered:
From the Daily Mail:
The Charlie Hebdo gunmen were today exchanging fire with police as they held hostages on an industrial estate near a Paris airport.
At least two people were killed and several wounded before Cherif and Said Kouachi entered business premises in the village of Dammartin-en-Goele, north-east of Paris.
They are believed to have taken hostages in a storage unit, which is now surrounded by police commandos.
As helicopters hovered overhead, France’s Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said: ‘A police operation is underway.’
The suspects were holed up in a small printing business named CTD, a source close to the investigation said. ‘It’s not sure how many people are inside,’ the source said.
Prior to the standoff, the suspects had hijacked a Peugeot 206 in Montagny-Sainte-Felicite from a woman who said she recognised them as the wanted men, a police source said.
The standoff was close to the same area where special police forces had been combing the countryside for the brothers.
Dozens of police had earlier pursued the brothers along the National 2 highway, ending in the small town of Dammartin-en-Goele, around 7 miles from Charles de Gaulle international airport.
The dramatic development came after thousands of police and soldiers had focused their hunt for the gunmen in a nearby forest amid fears they were planning a final ‘spectacular’ before capture.
