Paris gunmen killed by police

Two men suspected of carrying out the masscre at the Parisian offices of the Charlie Hebdo offices have been killed by police.  

The men took refuge in a cafe. They told police they were prepared to die for their cause. 

After leaving the building firing, police shot them. 

Elsewhere, reports came at lunchtime of another seige in eastern Paris. A man armed with a machine gun held hostages of men, women and children in a Jewish supermarket. Police later shot and killed the gunman, who was named as Amedy Coulibaly. It is reported he did not hang up the phone properly after negotiating with police, allowing them to work out the time to attack.  

Kim Sengupta, Defence and Diplomatic Correspondent at the Independent analyses what this update will mean, and why this attack has been so significant.
