Charlie Hebdo

Reports: 1 Charlie Hebdo suspect dead, other 2 in custody

One suspect in the attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is dead and the other two are in custody, senior U.S. officials told NBC.

UPDATE: NBC News has all but retracted that report, saying their U.S. counterterrorism sources now "cannot be certain of the status of the three suspects," blaming "contradictory" accounts from French sources. French police say two of the suspects are at large and the third has turned himself in.

The three men are brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi, and 18-year-old Hamyd Mourad, authorities said earlier Wednesday.
