French police have cornered two terrorists responsible for a massacre in Paris earlier this week. The two are holed up in a printing factory north of Paris.
According to initial reports, two people were killed in a shootout between the suspects and police, and 20 others were wounded. However, French police later denied reports of fatalities.
At least one person is being held hostage by the terrorists.
The suspects have been named as brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi. The two murdered 12 people two days ago in an attack targeting the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. The publication was targeted because it had published cartoons mocking radical Islam and terrorism.
The attack spurred demonstrations worldwide on behalf of free speech. Protests in France, Britain, Belgium, Israel and elsewhere have expressed support for the right to freedom of expression. Many have held signs saying Je suis Charlie (I am Charlie).
