France: See where Charlie Hebdo suspect Hamyd Mourad is being held

France, Charleville-Mezieres
January 8, 2015 at 07:27 GMT +00:00 · Published

Hamyd Mourad, the youngest suspect linked to the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris, was held at a police station in the northern French city of Charleville Mezieres on Thursday after turning himself in to authorities.

The 18-year-old was detained in his hometown close to France's border with Belgium. Mourad has reportedly told police that he was in school at the time of the attack. The two other suspects Said Kouachi, 34, and Cherif Kouachi, 32, are yet to be detained.

At least 12 people, including two police officers, were killed and several more critically injured when three armed gunmen opened fire at Charlie Hebdo magazine's HQ in central Paris. The men, dressed in black commando outfits, entered the building and fired a number of rounds from Kalashnikov assault rifles. They fled in a stolen car following a shoot-out with police. The men have reportedly been identified and a manhunt is currently underway.
