Once again here's NBC's Alex go. Leading up to 2015 there was growing tension between the French satirical weekly newspaper surely you have now when Islamic extremists over cartoons of had been appearing in the paper. On January 7 terrorist attack they surely have dealt offices. And that's good with a gun battle with police in terrorism attack. Can a magazine known for its cartoons of the Prophet Mohamed at least twelve people killed including an editors and cartoonist. And possibly some police officers were translator prince president along this is. The terrorist attacks there is no doubt about that a terror. I think Charlie in honor of the satirical magazine credit though that was the target of gunman who killed twelve people to police officers intend journalists the attack took just about five minutes in the gunman emerged from that building down there this. Quiet street still echoing what the gunfire went around the corner killed a policeman who would come onto the scene to try to stop them. And their car and headed. ABC news has learned that the youngest suspect eighteen year old Mohammed more out. This turned himself into the authorities after seeing his name circulating on social media police have put out a wanted poster for the other two men who they say are armed and dangerous. Brothers in their thirties named Sadie and Shareef squad chief here and ross' about ninety minutes from Paris police are combing through an apartment looking for any clues. That might lead them to the suspects. And notre done. Those minding tears in their eyes remembering the victims. This is a capital trying to come to terms with the horrific attack. Took place just over 24 hours ago. In the wake doesn't massacred last night emotional vigils were held throughout France in memory of the victims and in defense of free expression. The focus of this manhunt right now one of the largest in French history is on those two gunmen. Police are investigating reports that they have been seen in the north of France. And there has been a shoot out in the south of Paris with police one police officers killed unclear whether or not that is. Related to yesterday's terrorist attack. And just all police have massed around a forest about an hour outside Paris searching for the two suspects from Wednesday's deadly shooting. Man resembling those wanted were spotted in a village near the rents Boras on Thursday. Police officers armed with automatic weapons have been going house to house and villages around the forest telling residents to stay inside and asking them they seem to two Brothers who were on the run these assault teams are going methodically door to door their guns at the ready looking for these two suspects a scene that is playing out in villages all across this. There is breaking news out of France the Interior Minister there. Confirming the search for two gunmen believed responsible for Wednesday's attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie had dealt. Is now focused on the town some thirty miles northeast of Paris. The two Brothers holed up in a business there we have reports they have at least one hostage a worker at that business. And beer is an ongoing operation the French National Guard on the site that is unfolding right now slot. Teams are active as the manhunt continues for the two Brothers who are accused of shooting and killing twelve people at the French satirical magazine in Paris right now. Effectively a small town demy tent and go out. Northeast of Paris near shoulder Gaulle airport is shut down and planes have been diverted from the airport it appears that that the Brothers may be. Holed up there possibly with a hostage the two individuals right now inside a building it's got a number of offices including a small printing company. There have been you know local reports there are fears of of of hostages. In this building. That is now been confirmed by government officials here in Paris 22 miles away they say at least one hostage inside. We are in the area I have talked about all go at we get it close to that industrial zone off the ball the police boat gendarme and swat teams have dropped the net on that area preventing anyone actually Brett. Brought it in close but what we are being the heavy security president. I'll world that the helicopters flying in from other places and harboring. Above the area. The entire community is now up effectively on lockdown they've been instructed to lock the doors stay inside. Reminiscent of the manhunt in Boston in the posture in Boston. After the marathon attacks. Some years ago and and now that this small community northeast of Paris is on similar lockdown with heavily armed police officers present everywhere. Security forces that depended on the area. In very large numbers they have to match the negotiations are ongoing but. These two men as we know our Islamic fundamentalists. At least one of the Brothers we understand from US official we're all by French official. That the older brother had gone to Yemen. I had been trained by al-Qaeda we know that some extent that they have a very very radical. Ideology interpretation of Islam one would have to imagine that these guys. I will not go down without fighting and and possibly would want to die a martyr. It's jumpers over a little town northeast of Paris where the two suspects in this week's shootings are believed to be surrounded. It's present. And outside Paris this is a standoff French. The law enforcement officials expect that that these are men who want to die as martyrs that is what one official has said. So this is it this is the showdown that. 88000 French law enforcement officers and the French people have been looking toward to see how this awful terrorist attack that happened on Wednesday will end. Police now responding to a shooting and Kosher grocery store east of this city that may be related to the shooting of a policewoman outside Paris yesterday to very tense situations right now outside Paris the two suspects in this week's massacre are surrounded. And another hostage situation involving up. Possible cop killer in the. Eastern part of the capital another hostage drama is unfolding where gunmen with automatic weapons as holding a number of people at a Kosher supermarket. He says he'll release them when the other hostage situation is resolved. Police think he may be that same person who shot at a female police officer at a subway station yesterday. Just reported moments ago serious developments at the scene of the hostage takeover northeast of Paris gunshots and explosions can be heard now coming from the direction of one of two standoffs at the scene. Of the first standoff involving the two Brothers believed to be responsible for the deadly shooting of twelve people at the satirical French magazine that there are now. Gunshots being heard a series of bangs so loss of smoke and perhaps. French police mounting some kind of an assault just. Moments ago we started hearing a loud gunshots repeated sustained gunshot as well as always one large group. Coming from the area back behind me about a mile that's more or less where the industrial zone is where that printing shop. Is where those suspects have been holding. That hostage. This hostage crisis started about seven hours ago and it and for the last few hours Henderson police have been negotiating. When did you suspects inside but now it seems an operation is underway the police are going in to try to end this standoff. The public prosecutor in Paris has said that the man who is holding hostages in the Kosher grocer just around the corner here has said he will kill those hostages. Yeah in fact did police storm. His knee and his colleagues in terror if you will in that village north India friends and since that seems to be going out some kind of firing in the north of France. Police on edge here there's a lot of movement around here we are not hearing. Any kind of gunfire here right now but as you say these incidents are linked just the last minute for wowed. Banks very very loud bangs coming. From the direction of that Kosher grocery it looks like how the action is underway here as well they did not select gunfire to it to me very loud bangs. Perhaps that that that flash bang technique of a dynamic entry into the grocery store but that's what I can report for very loud bangs happening. Now we're hearing gunfire. A lot about automatic gunfire. You can probably hear it. There's another bank. A lot of automatic weapons fire. And large and large banks as well it seems that the operations going on right now remember there are hostages. But in that Kosher grocery store as I say this is the seventh a lot of people in their doing their shopping before sundown. Which is happening now so I know that there are a lot of prayers going out for the hostages there and and up for Alex Marquardt is Tamara. The town has just confirmed that the two Brothers. The two main suspects in the Charlie a bill massacre from two days ago have been killed and the mail hostage that they have been holding throughout the course of this day. Has been freed. The Kosher supermarket has been stormed the terrorist is dead. There are reports that there were deaths here and very brief spurt. Of gunfire. At least one perhaps you banks they sound like single shots coming from and guns they sound like. Not possibly flash bangs but beyond that we have seen very little from this vantage point there has been smoke. Rising how we understand from that industrial complex. But we are awaiting awaiting word he'd come from the police that's exactly what happened in that hostage situations there is a palpable sense here. That this standoff is over the ended this siege to a for a brief period of about 45 seconds to a minute we heard. Our repeated gunfire by security forces points game. To try to save that hostage who is being held by the two suspects in the Charlie Abdul. Massacre of two days ago for. Magazine massacred terrorists are dead as are four hostages north of Paris and right now wanted posters are raptors a manhunt for a woman. A suspected accomplice who police say escape from the Kosher deli one of the bloody standoff sites earlier today. More hostages killed in France today were dead before police began their assault. And a Kosher deli north of the French capital that from the Paris prosecutor adding that the bomb squad went inside to secure the building and found the place was rigged with explosive. A claim of responsibility. For the attack on Charlie of dope. The terror group al-Qaeda in Yemen is now gone public claiming it directed the killings in revenge leaders say for the honor of the Prophet Mohammed I. Outside of the Kosher supermarket in the eastern part of the capital they done. Hundreds they're paying their respects to the four victims who died in the second of the two hostage situations. That gripped this ban city tomorrow world leaders will join an expected one million people on the streets of Paris. For a silent unity march. Capping off a traumatic week for this country crowds. Gathering in Paris. One million people expected including dozens of world leaders a massive rally following three days of terror in the French capital the march is about unity. Young old conservative liberal religious nonreligious. They're all here saying we embrace inclusiveness and diversity and a freedom to express one's own beliefs without fear of reprisal. It's a strong message if anything the violent attacks that killed seventeen haven't divided the community see here it's actually brought people from different backgrounds together. On the streets of Paris. Thousands chanting Charlie the crowds continue to grow. And about one hour one million people expected to march for unity following three days of violence that terrorized the nation. The name through the together with perhaps one of determination that the whole nation is rising up after being knocked down by the terrorist Rampage this weekend apparently has one. In the weeks after they surely have deadly shooting there were several more smaller attacks in the same region of France five more were killed and eleven were injured. As the months went by normalcy begin to restore until terrorists carried out a series of attacks on a much bigger scale on a bustling Friday night in November. Coming up.

Welcome back on May twelfth over 200 people were riding on an Amtrak train from Washington DC to New York City as a whole through Philadelphia their lives would forever change. On Amtrak train his steel rails near Philadelphia a little is known. At this time we are beginning to see images now of train cars completely off the tracks on their sides train cars completely toppled over. Rescuers are using flashlights looking through the area. Trying to find any victims and going through the train cars. We are seeing responders with flashlights moving it a number of responders. And a helicopter seemed to be flying over the area as well. Right now rescue teams are using the platters in the air climbing up onto the train cars that are on their sides just see I'll flashing lights there is in a spotlight from a helicopter likely a law enforcement helicopters it's making its way around the area. And then a whole lot of small flashlights on the ground from all the firefighters and all of the police officers. Who are there and on ladders trying to get into these train cars one person on a stretcher. Being pushed by a firefighter. Into a waiting ambulance there are quite a few fire engines and ambulances at bear around the scene as you can imagine. As rescue teams are rushing in to try to help anybody they can you can hear the sounds behind me here right now. There are helicopters up above there are rescue teams moving Gandy it is a very act. Active scene right now. It is incredible there they massive police and emergency response we've been watching it they cure band of paramedics and I UT an ambulance. Go -- backing of the derailment happened. Extricate people get them out that fire aren't working yet people out. They're getting folks on to stretchers and we know that at least that you respect beat people happened not transported. On the stretcher by ambulance to area top level. This is a really bad situation. We have over sixty people who have been injured. Many of them seriously. We have a number of unconfirmed did at this point. One gentleman now with the beard and quite bloody with a he had.

I'm bringing up folks out to. Ambulances in and others who can help them also another gentleman who has blood all over his white shirt. I heard like a Big Bang.

Take get two others. The Department of Homeland Security is on scene. And the National Transportation Safety Board will lead the investigation. The FBI says it doesn't look like foul play. Authorities here on the scene now telling us that death told now up to six and again they have not accounted for everyone. On this train keep in mind it's unlike a plane you don't have an assigned seat he does have a ticket. You go on and you see where you want which is why it's so difficult to make sure they know that everyone's been accounted for. Speed is an initial focus for investigators here the trade appears to have derailed as it rounded a curve here in Philadelphia. Authorities of course are going to want to know why into that then they interview the train operator. Was there a human error mechanical failure they'll also examined event recorder that will tell them whether the brakes were applied. And a camera that faces forward both tell investigators whether there were any obstructions on the track already in this hour to each body has been pulled from the wreckage of this week's Amtrak train crash in Philadelphia we did.

Within a few minutes the night of the deadly Amtrak disaster that could lead to this right now FBI investigators are helping the NTSB analyze the wreckage and depending on what they find. This could turn into a criminal investigation the NTSB is still investigating the cause of that derailment believing it was likely an accident there had been no criminal charges. Coming up.
