Death Toll in Charlie Hebdo Attack Climbs to 12, 10 Wounded
At least twelve people have died and ten have been injured in a gunmen raid on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, according to Paris officials.
Some of the wounded are in a critical condition. Reportedly, two of those injured are police officers.
Charlie Hebdo's lawyers says four well-known French cartoonists - Cabu, Wollinski, Charb and Tignous - were killed in the attack.
Witness reports aired by the English-language French TV station France24 suggest that at least two black-hooded men took part in the assault.
France's President Francois Hollande has called what he describes as "undoubtedly a terrorist attack" as an act "of exceptional brutality".
The developments follow Charlie Hebdo's Twitter release of a caricature portraying Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of Islamic State.
