PARIS TERROR Part 4: Suspects “willing to die”

BY CHARL BOSCH - JANUARY 9, 2015

Reports from France have indicated that around 1 000 police are making their way to an industrial complex in the town of Dammartin-en-Goele, where the two suspect brothers, involved in the attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, are believed to have taken at least one person hostage.

According to Reuters, around five helicopters, some sporting open cargo and heavily armed police, are encircling the area with resident having been told to stay indoors. This comes after a high speed chase on the main RN2 highway in which the brothers, Cherif and Said Kouachi, reportedly fired at police while driving in the direction of Paris in a grey Peugeot 206 which had been stolen in the town of Montagny Sainte Felicite, not far from Crepy-en-Valois where they were first spotted.

Sky News reports that the men have reportedly told negotiators that they are ‘ready to die as martyrs’.
