Mass shooting at French satirical magazine offices leaves at least 11 dead.
At least 11 people have been killed – 9 journalists and 2 policemen – and 10 injured in a shooting at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical newspaper firebombed in the past after publishing cartoons in 2011 joking about Muslim leaders, according to Paris police.
Witnesses say there was sustained gunfire at the office as the attackers opened fire with assault rifles.

“About a half an hour ago two black-hooded men entered the building with Kalashnikovs (guns),” Benoit Bringer told the station.
