Charlie Hebdo Attack

Three Islamist Militant attackers shot and killed 12 people at the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical magazine, on January 7, 2015. Ten staff members of the magazine and two police officers were among those killed in the shooting. The shooters, identified as Hamyd Mourad and brothers Said Kouachi and Cherif Kouachi, fled in a getaway car.

Hamyd Mourad surrendered on Jan. 8 by walking into a police station about 145 miles northeast of Paris. Police killed the Kouachi brothers a day later, in a raid on a print shop in Dammartin-en-Goele, about 25 miles northeast of Paris.
