French police hunt ‘armed and dangerous’ suspects

These handout photos released by French Police shows suspects Cherif Kouachi, left, and his brother Said Kouachi, who are wanted in connection with an attack at a satirical weekly in the French capital that killed at least 12 people.

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls says there were “several arrests” overnight in the hunt for two terror suspects after a deadly shooting Wednesday at a French satirical weekly newspaper that left 12 people dead.

The suspected terrorist shooters are brothers, one of whom is well known to French law enforcement. Cherif Kouachi, now 32, served 18 months in prison on terrorism charges in 2008.

A third suspect, Mourad Hamyd,18, surrendered at a police station in Charleville-Mezieres, a small town in France’s eastern Champagne region, Paris prosecutor’s spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said, the Associated Press reported. She did not specify his relationship to the Kouachi brothers.
