Terrorists Attack French Satirical Magazine

In a still developing story from France, at least 12 people were killed and 4 others critically wounded today in a terrorist attack by two heavily armed gunmen at the Paris offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.  The magazine has been a target in the past because of its publishing of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad or satirizing Islamic law.  The magazine has also satirized other religious groups. CNN reports on today's attack in a post that is being updated on a continuous basis.
