Charlie Hebdo Massacre: Police Arrest Several Suspects

French police have arrested several suspects after the attack at the satirical Charlie Hebdo newspaper in Paris, which killed 10 journalists and two policemen. 

"Several were held overnight," France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls told RTL radio. He said the suspects, who haven’t been identified by police authorities yet, were known to France’s intelligence services. Preventing another attack "is our main concern," added Valls.

Earlier, authorities reported that one suspect had surrendered and two gunmen remain on the run after the deadly shooting in the French capital.
The three attackers have been identified as Said Kouachi, 34, Cherif Kouachi, 32, and Hamyd Mourad, 18, AP reported citing French police. The names and photos of Kouachi brothers were later officially released by the authorities.
