Terror continues in Paris today as Jihadists at two different locations hold people in the locked down city.
The first situation is with the two brothers who carried out the attack on Charlie Hebdo earlier this week.
The two brothers suspected in a deadly terror attack Wednesday were cornered by police Friday inside a printing house in the small industrial town of Dammartin-en-Goele. One lawmaker said they told negotiators they "want to die as martyrs."
The next is suspected to be the man who shot a French police woman Tuesday night. He is reportedly holding people hostage inside a Kosher deli/grocery store in Paris with his girlfriend. They are armed with two AK-47s and is holding women and children hostage.
A gunman seized an unknown number of hostages at a kosher market in eastern Paris, France's anti-terrorism prosecutor said. A police official, who was not authorized to speak to the media about the events, told The Associated Press there were several hostages and wounded in the kosher market.
UPDATE: Two people have reportedly been killed at the grocery store.
UPDATE (Dan): The police have a suspect:
