Meet the brothers who killed 12 people in Paris massacre yesterday

Brothers Said Kouachi (right), 34, and Cherif Kouachi (left), 32, both from Paris, have been identified as the men who stormed into the office of French Newspaper Charlie Hebdo yesterday and killed 12 people, including two police officers.

A third suspect, 18 year old Hamyd Mourad, who didn't fire any shorts, surrendered to police late last night after seeing his name circulating on social media. The two brothers, who are said to have been trained in Yemen as assassins, are still at large.

One of the suspects, Cherif and 6 others were arrested and sentenced to 3 years imprisonment for terrorism in Paris in May 2008. All seven men were accused of sending about a dozen young Frenchmen to join Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, after funneling them through radical religious establishments in Syria and Egypt.
