Eleven are dead and several injured in a shooting at French magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, multiple sources reported Wednesday.
An eyewitness, Benoit Bringer, told French TV channel Itele: “Two black-hooded men entered the building with Kalashnikovs. A few minutes later we heard lots of shots.”
French President Francois Hollande condemned the shooting, which he dubbed a “terrorist attack,” and vowed to “find the people who did this.”
The magazine’s headquarters previously caught fire just before a issue featuring the Prophet Muhammad was distributed, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The Agence France-Presse tweeted a photo from the scene of the shooting, with a caption indicating that two police officers are among the dead.
