Jan 7 2015

Paris (CNN)At least 10 people were killed in a shooting inside the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday, the Paris prosecutor's office said, according to CNN affiliate BFMTV.
French President Francois Hollande and other senior government officials are due to arrive at the scene of the shooting shortly, BFMTV said.
At least three police officers were injured, police union spokesman Luc Poignant told BFMTV.
Two heavily armed men entered the Charlie Hebdo office and opened fire inside the building, Poignant said.
The Paris mayor's office said at least six people were wounded, according to BFMTV.
    The magazine's office was burned three years ago in response to its publication of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
