    At the current time, it looks like all the hostages are all right. I hope that information is confirmed. I suspect the hostility that the French have against the Mulsim population will increase dramatically.

    Tragically, there are now reports that at least some of the hostages were killed.

    Yes. I keep hearing that there were at least four.

    Nevertheless, it looks, preliminarily, as if the swat teams did a brilliant job.

    Latest on France 24 6.15pm Paris time: all three terrorists the Kouachi brothers and Amedy Coulibali are dead, one accomplice (the girlfriend of Coulibali) fled the scene before special forces arrived at the Jewish grocery store, 5 hostages are dead and 4 are gravely wounded.

    Update: the 4 wounded are cops.

    Such fluid reporting. Just turned off Fox about 20 minutes ago with report that hostages were okay at both locations. Sorry to hear this. It will effect every future hostage operation.

    Yeah, the very first reports were that the bad guys were dead and everyone else was safe. My cheers were shortlived...

    Watching it live the first reports were that everyone in the market were killed. Then they stopped reporting about the hostages and simply said the gunmen were dead. Then there were reports elsewhere all the hostages were freed. Now we're back to most or all are dead at the market and the one survived at the other location???

    You've never talked to sKiTzo, have you?
    That guy thinks initial reports are the MOST accurate.....as long as they coincide with his worldview.

    Hope the last suspect is found before she can cause even more damage to humanity.
