The world mourns after Charlie Hebdo attack
The world mourned the loss of 12 people who were killed Wednesday during an ambush shooting at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical news magazine. In what has been called a terrorist attack, two masked gunmen with Kalashnikov assault weapons killed eight journalists, a guest, two police officers and a maintenance worker before fleeing the scene. France’s capital and the world have come together to support for Charlie Hebdo. A massive manhunt was underway for two men suspected in the killing. A third suspect turned himself in to police. Thousands on social media spread the hashtag #CharlieHebdo to discuss the violent act, and public gatherings and candlelight vigils have formed to mourn the victims.
