Twelve people have been left dead after gunmen attacked Paris based Charlie Hebdo, an anti-Islamic satirical magazine.
Two masked men had, earlier today, burst into the Charlie Hebdo headquarters, opening fire on staff with Kalashnikovs rifles.
Police officers engaged the men in a firefight, but they escaped in a hijacked car, and sped away towards east Paris.
Apart from the 12 people that are dead, 10 people are wounded, while four are in critical condition.
Below are 10 photos from during, before and after the attack:
