PARIS, January 9. /TASS/. The Paris Prosecutor’s Office has denied reports that at least one person has been killed in a shootout with the suspects in the Charlie Hebdo killings.
Earlier, some French media outlets, including Le Parisien daily, reported that two people had been killed and about 20 wounded as police chased Cherif and Said Kouachi suspected of a deadly attack at the Paris-based satirical magazine.
Interior Minister Bernard Cazaneuve has confirmed that an anti-terrorist operation is under way in the town of Dammartin-en-Goele.
The suspects, who earlier on Friday took several people hostage, are holed up in a small printing in the industrial zone of Dammartin-en-Goele, a town with the population of 8,500, 50 kilometers north of Paris. It is yet unclear how many hostages they have seized.
It has been reported that French President Francois Hollande is on his way to the Interior Ministry to personally monitor the operation to release hostages and seize the suspected terrorists.
On Wednesday morning, masked gunmen targeted an office of the Paris-based satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine, which earlier published caricature images of the Prophet Muhammed.
As a result the shooting, 12 people were killed, including 10 staff members and two policemen. Another 11 people were wounded. This is the deadliest attack in France in half a century.
