CNN is reporting that French Swat teams have killed the two terrorist Kouachi brothers who have been on the run plus another man who was holding hostages at a grocery store. A twitter tweet reports that four hostages were also killed. CNN has confirmed this. Apparently, the hostage taker, Amedy Coulibaly, killed the hostages, which gave the police swat team reason to go in.
CNN also reports that a woman who was involved in the hostage taking is still on the loose.
French police say her name is Hayat Boumeddiene.
The third accomplice killed is Amedy Coulibaly.
There is a Facebook page for a Hayat Boumeddiene, but there is no image of her, and no confirmation that she is the same person referred to by CNN and multiple people on Twitter. The Facebook page does show that she is from Algeria, like the two brothers who participated in the shooting at Charlie Hebdo and that she studied at Sinia Oran University.
The third hostage taker who was killed was Amedy Koulibaly, who the French Police released a profile image of, above.
