They were also armed with a rocket launcher along with their Kalashinkovs..

Minutes before the shooting, CHARLIE HEBDO tweeted a satirical image of Mohammed.. Moments later their office building was under siege and the murderous rampage took place..

There is also video of the attacks.. raw video showcasing the shootings.. Originally, the media reported that they had video but chose, initially,not to air footage.

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
