What we know about the three incidents in France since the attack on the Charlie Hebdo newsroom in Paris on Wednesday:
1. Two men, believed to be the same who killed 12 people in the attack on Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday, are holding at least one hostage in a printing plant in Dammartin-en-Goele, north east of Paris.
Police and military tactical units have surrounded the plant and are negotiating with the men by phone.
2. Another man is holding at least five hostages in a kosher market in Paris, and has threatened to kill them if police move in on the printing plant hostage takers.
Speaking with The Associated Press, a police official said the attack on the market and the standoff at the printing plant were “clearly linked.”
3. Le Figaro writes that police are investigating whether Coulibaly went on the attack in hopes of creating a diversion that would let the brothers escape.
