TWELVE DEAD, MAGAZINE SILENCED IN PARIS TERRORIST ATTACK [UPDATED]
Three masked men kill 12 people after storming the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, then flee after a gun battle
The bodies of victims are being removed from a Paris building as police conduct a major manhunt for gunmen who killed 12 at the headquarters of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Three masked gunmen stormed the offices of the controversial publication, which has previously been attacked for its portrayal of the Prophet Mohammed. French police officials say they have identified three men as suspects and have named them. The attackers were armed with Kalashnikov rifles and a rocket-propelled grenade during the attack on Wednesday morning. Police sources have said two brothers from the Paris region and another man from Rheims have been linked to the attack.
The intent is clear.

A court in Denmark has found a Somali man guilty of attempted terrorism for trying to kill a cartoonist whose portrayal in 2005 of the prophet Mohammad, led to outrage in the muslim world.
Wow, the prosecutor says nine years is not enough
for this miscreant.
An appeals court has begun a trial against a Somali man convicted of terrorism for breaking into the home of a Danish cartoonist who caricatured the Prophet Muhammad.
The prosecutor on Wednesday asked the Western High Court to raise Muhideen Mohammed Geelle’s prison sentence to 12 years from the nine years given by a lower court in February. A verdict is expected next week.
