BREAKING NEWS: Charlie Hebdo suspects killed in police assault; hostage freed (VIDEO)

The two brothers suspected of massacring staff at the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris have been killed and their hostage freed.

Gunshots and explosions have been heard at the Dammartin-en-Goele factory where brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi had been holed up with a 26-year-old male hostage. According to media reports in France the brothers – who came out firing – have been killed and their hostage freed safely.

A helicopter which had been hovering nearby landed on top of the building during the raid. The Kouachi brothers had been surrounded at the print works by special forces officers for several hours. They took refuge in the building with a hostage after being forced off the road into Paris by a police roadblock.

Earlier in the day they broke cover from an area northeast of the capital and stole a car, before heading towards Paris.

A police chase took place and they were forced off the road close to the city’s outskirts.
