IN PICTURES: A timeline of the Paris terror attacks
Heavily armed gunmen shouting "Allahu akbar" stormed the Paris headquarters of a satirical weekly on Wednesday morning, killing 12 people. A police officer was killed in a second shooting on Thursday morning, when a gunman opened fire. Here we've put together a timeline from the moment of the first attack up to the latest incidents as France hunts for three gunmen.
Three armed gunmen with Kalashnikovs turn up at the Charlie Hebdo offices on Rue Nicolas Appert at 11:30am. They threaten Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Corinne Rey, who is returning after picking up her daughter, and she lets them into the office. Shouting "Allahu akbar!" (God is great) the pair fire inside the office, killing 11, including a police officer. Another police officer is then shot dead outside the building, bringing the number of victims to 12.
