Charlie Hebdo suspects are Dead

Said Kouachi and Cherif Kouachi, the two brothers involved in the Charlie Hebdo shootings, were killed in a supermarket.

From HuffPo:
Two brothers believed to be behind Wednesday's attack on the offices of French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo were killed on Friday, Agence France Presse reported, the culmination of a dramatic day in which France was shaken by two simultaneous hostage crises.

The fate of the hostages is currently unknown. Police raided a kosher supermarket in Paris where a gunman opened fire and took at least five people hostage. Reuters reported that the gunman was killed in the police assault. Several hostages were rescued, and Reuters also reported that at least four hostages were killed.

Police also cornered brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi on Friday inside a printing house in the town of Dammartin-en-Goele near Charles de Gaulle International Airport.
We will probably hear more about the brothers soon.

I mourn their victims.

But I am happy they are dead. My only regret is that they died quickly.
