This Week in Pictures: Jan. 3-9
As the week came to a close, Paris continued to be gripped by unprecedented crisis. The two suspects in Wednesday’s deadly shooting at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo were killed after police stormed a building outside Paris Friday. At the same time, paramilitary police raided a kosher supermarket in Paris where a suspected gunman connected to the Charlie Hebdo suspects had taken people hostage. That suspect was also killed, French newspaper Le Monde reported. There was no word on the condition of any of the hostages.
In New York, the 52nd governor of the state, Mario Cuomo, died on the day that his son, Andrew Cuomo, was sworn in for his second term as New York governor. Also laid to rest was the second police officer killed in Brooklyn in December, Wenjian Liu, as rifts between the police department and Mayor Bill de Blasio continued to grow.
The search continued for debris and remains of the victims from the AirAsia flight that crashed into the Java Sea as hope remained that the black boxes – located in the aircraft’s tail which was being recovered on Friday – would be found.
