Massive manhunt underway for three gunmen responsible for massacre at French newspaper
A massive manhunt is underway for three masked gunmen who stormed the Paris offices of a satirical newspaper Wednesday, killing 12 people while shouting “Allahu akbar!” Among the dead was the editor of Charlie Hebdo, Stephane Charbonnier, and two police officers. It was France’s deadliest terror attack in living memory. French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said security forces were hunting for three gunmen after the noon-time attack on the weekly, whose caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed have frequently drawn condemnation from Muslims. Twelve people died and eight were wounded, including four critically, officials said.

Worldwide Suicide Attacks Nearly Double in 2014
Muslim slaughter of fellow-Muslims and "infidels" reached new modern heights in 2014. Though car bombings still likely have the lead in worldwide attacks, the number of suicide murderers – virtually all them Muslims, and mostly from Sunni Salafist jihadi organizations affiliated with global jihad – appears to be the next-most lethal weapon. The Tel Aviv-based Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) has found that there were 592 attacks in 2014, causing some 4,400 deaths. During 2013, there were just over 300 attacks, with 3,200 casualties. INSS research finds that the skyrocketing trend in Muslim suicide murders is due largely to three factors: Middle East turmoil and governmental instability; the meteoric rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) and its influence in the region and the world; and the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
