Reports this morning are that the two Charlie Hebdo terrorists are holding a hostage. Another man is supposed to be holding hostages in a kosher deli, demanding their release. As I type these words, there are shots being fired in the first hostage situation. As I noted two days ago, I didn’t expect the French to fuck around. It looks like they aren’t.
Vive la France.
Update: Preliminary reports are that the Hebdo killers are dead.
Update: Right now, we’re hearing that three of the gunmen are dead and one female accomplice is at large. I’m not sure about the hostages.
