Archive: 12 Killed in Terrorist Attack on Office of Satirical Magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris

Twelve people were killed in Paris on January 7 when two Islamic extremists stormed the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and opened fire. The attack prompted a manhunt that ended on January 9 when police shot and killed the two men in Dammartin-en-Goële, north of Paris. On the same day, an armed terrorist linked to the Islamic State took several hostages in a kosher food market in Paris, killing five before being shot and killed by police as they raided the building. In the days that followed the Charlie Hebdo, solidarity rallies took place worldwide under the banner "Je Suis Charlie", and world leaders expressed their support for France in its fight against terrorism. In Algeria, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Gaza, hardline Muslims rallied in support of the attackers, denouncing Charlie Hebdo's skewering of Islam.
