Worker who eluded Charlie Hebdo killers sues French TV

An employee of a French print works where police cornered and killed the two brothers responsible for January’s deadly Charlie Hebdo killings is suing French TV for allegedly putting his life in danger during the siege.

Lilian Lepère, 26, spent eight hours hiding under a leaky sink after the Kalashnikov-wielding Kouachi brothers, Cherif and Saïd, took over the print works in Dammartin-en-Goële, some 40km from Paris.

The Kouachi brothers had been on the run for 48 hours after entering the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo where they killed 12 people.
