Police: “A M82 rocket launcher with a loaded rocket – I insist on this, a loaded rocket – ten smoke grenades, two Kalashnikov machine guns and two automatic pistols were discovered”
Officials said Cherif Kouachi and his brother Said, both in their thirties, died Friday when security forces raided a print shop in the small town of Dammartin-en-Goele, northeast of Paris, where the chief suspects in Wednesday’s attack against French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo had been holed up. The hostage they had taken was safe, an official said.
Minutes after the print shop assault, police broke the second siege at a Jewish supermarket in eastern Paris. Four hostages died there along with the gunman, Amedy Coulibaly.
Paris chief prosecutor Francois Molins told a press briefing that the two Kouachi brothers and Coulibaly had an arsenal of weapons and had set up booby traps.
