French Police Kill Terror Suspects in Paris
With explosions and gunfire, security forces on Friday ended a three-day terror spree around Paris, killing the two al-Qaida-linked brothers who staged a murderous rampage at a satirical newspaper and an associate who seized a kosher supermarket to try to help them escape. The worst terrorist attacks France has seen in decades left at least 20 people dead, including the three gunmen. The fate of a fourth suspect -- a female accomplice of the market attacker -- remained unclear. At least seven people were killed Friday -- the three terrorists and at least four hostages -- a policewoman was killed Thursday and 12 people were massacred in the Paris newspaper attack Wednesday. Sixteen hostages were freed Friday, one from the printing plant where the two brothers were holed up and 15 others from the Paris grocery store. Paris shut down a famed Jewish neighborhood amid fears that a wider terror cell might launch further attacks.
