Islamists Raid Offices of Charlie Hebdo, Parisian Satirical Paper Which Spoofed Islam, Murdering 12 Journalists

Screaming, "We have avenged the prophet mohammad." (Capitalization omitted.)

Charlie was firebombed in 2011 after publishing a cartoon of mohammad.

The Obama Administration is currently saying they don't have enough information to call it terrorism.

The gunmen remain at large.

Gunmen have attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people and injuring seven in an apparent Islamist attack.

Three masked attackers opened fire with assault rifles in the office and exchanged shots with police in the street outside before escaping by car.

The gunmen shouted "we have avenged the Prophet Muhammad", witnesses say.

..

A major police operation is under way in the Paris area to catch the killers. The number of gunmen was initially reported to be two, but French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve later said they were hunting three "criminals".

Four of the magazine's well-known cartoonists, including its editor-in-chief Stephane Charbonnier were reported among those killed, as well as two police officers.

Mr Charbonnier, 47, had received death threats in the past and was living under police protection.

Audio of the gunmen chanting "On a vengé le prophète mohammed, on a tué Charlie Hebdo" here. (We have avenged the prophet mohammad, we have killed Charlie Hebdo.)

Remember, though, it's too early yet for Obama to say it's terrorism.

Amazing: The Obama Administration previously praised Charlie Hebdo for its courage.

Wait, no it didn't -- back in 2012, it attacked it at the moment the paper was bracing for attacks.

France's National Warning System on Red Alert. Their Vigipirate sytem was raised to its highest level; offices of magazines and newspapers, and places of worship, have been placed under high guard.

Already On Heightened Alert. Over the week-end, an assailant crying, get this, "aluha akbar" attacked people at a police station with a knife. France was already on elevated alert following that attack.
