Two suspects in the Charlie Hebdo attacks were killed in a shootout with police Friday evening northeast of Paris while at least four people died in a second hostage crisis at a Kosher Paris market. To review the day's events read our live blog.

  • French police launched an assault Friday on the two Charlie Hebdo shooting suspects – brothers Cherif Kouachi, 32, and Said Kouachi, 34 – reportedly killing both. A hostage the men were holding at a printing shop in the town of Dammartin-en-Goële, around 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) from Paris's main airport, Charles De Gaulle, has been released and is unhurt.
  • Police also stormed a Kosher supermarket in eastern Paris, releasing several hostages who were held there by a gunman. The hostage-taker, who is reported dead, has been linked to the fatal shooting of a policewoman in Montrouge in southern Paris on Thursday. In a televised address late on Friday, French President François Hollande said four hostages had been killed in an “appalling, anti-Semitic act”.
  • French officials have also said there was a "connection" between the Montrouge shooting and the massacre at Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday.
  • The Kouachi brothers are suspected of killing 12 people at the Paris-based satirical weekly – eight journalists, two police officers, a maintenance worker and a visitor. Eleven people were also wounded, four of them seriously.
  • Police have named a suspected accomplice in the murder of the policewoman in Montrouge as Hayat Boumeddiene, 26, describing her as “armed and dangerous”. She remains at large.
  • Nine people have so far been detained in the investigation.
