Charlie Hebdo: Paris Gun Attack

france paris charlie hebdoOn 7 January gunmen attacked the HQ offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine on rue Nicolas Appert, east Paris. Twelve people were killed and several injured.

The assailants, including a driver, fled from Charlie Hebdo in a Citroen C3, headed toward Porte de Pantin on the northern edge of Paris, where police lost track of them.

The French domestic terror threat level has been raised to the highest level ‘Alerte – Attentat’ in response to this incident. Authorities have introduced heightened security measures in public places, including shopping areas, tourist sites and transportation hubs.

You should remain vigilant in public places and report any suspicious activities to police.

There is an ongoing threat of terrorism in Europe. We assess there is a heightened threat of terrorist attack in a number of European countries, including France. This threat is posed by those motivated by the current conflict in Iraq and Syria.
