The Paris office which is the headquarters of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo located in central Paris was today attacked by masked gunmen who were armed with Kalashnikovs and a rocket-launcher . At least 12 people were killed and many others were injured among whom some are in critical conditions. The number of attackers was at least two as reported by a reliable source but some claim it as three. Before escaping by car, they exchanged shots with police in the street outside the office building. It is reported that a gunman had hijacked a car for carrying on the operation. A major police operation has been initiated to get at the killers. As a peace loving citizen, I condemn this barbaric terrorist attack in the magazine office and hope all will do so.
