PARIS, January 9. /TASS/. Updated reports say the suspects in the Charlie Hebdo killings, Cherif and Said Kouachi, have barricaded themselves with hostages in the building of CDT printing house in the industrial zone of Dammartin-en-Goele, a town with the population of 8,500.
Earlier, the AFP news agency reported that the suspects had taken hostages in Dammartin-en-Goele 50 kilometers north of Paris, but did not give the number of hostages.
The zone is cordoned off by police units. Helicopters can be seen over the site. An operation is under way.
Earlier police reports said the suspects had hijacked a car near the town. The female driver of the car identified the Kouachi brothers and a chase began.
“All forces have been mobilized,” French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said at an emergency session early on Friday.
