A manhunt is currently underway after masked gunman opened fire at the office of satirical French newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris, leaving 12 people dead and another three critically injured.
Witnesses say three men armed with AK-47s wearing black hoods forced their way into the building and began indiscriminately shooting people before fleeing by car. Schools are on lockdown throughout the city, and President Hollande has elevated the nation to its highest terror alert status.

Charlie Hebdo has dealt in satire since the days of the French Revolution. The paper’s office was burned down in 2011 on the same day it was due to release an issue making fun of Islamic law.
The paper had received multiple threats more recently after publishing a spoof issue that was “guest edited” by The Prophet Muhammed (two of the victims include police officers were were assigned to guard the paper at the time against just such attacks).
While many in official positions are decrying this as a terror attack carried out to silence free speech — Secretary of State John Kerry is calling the victims “martyrs for liberty” — the same administration condemned Charlie Hebdo in the past and the media is, at the same time, censoring the very Charlie Hebdo cartoons in question these people supposedly lost their lives to publish:
