A terrorist attack this morning in Paris has left 12 dead and at least five seriously injured.

According to news reports, three gunmen entered the offices of French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo with assault rifles and opened fire on journalists.

Among those slain are 10 Charlie Hebdo staff and two police officers.

President Francois Hollande said the attack was “without a doubt” an act of terrorism.
