French officials closing in on Charlie Hebdo shooting suspects

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve says an operation is underway to detain two brothers suspected in the newsroom massacre at a satirical weekly.

The operation unfolded Friday in Dammartin-en-Goele, about 25 miles northeast of Paris.

Cazeneuve spoke moments after an emergency meeting with the president, prime minister and top police official.

Hours earlier, according to a security official, the brothers stole a Peugeot amid gunfire.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to describe an unfolding operation.
