Amateur footage reportedly shows masked gunmen fleeing the Charlie Hebdo headquarters

France news channel BFM TV broadcast this 19-second video, which shows two people dressed in head-to-toe black carrying automatic weapons jogging to a small black car parked in the middle of the street. The two yell in French and gesture with their arms before getting in the car and driving away.

According to the video's subtitles, the terrorists reportedly say, "Revenge was the Prophet Muhammad! Charlie Hebdo was killed!" The echo of their voices in the quiet street is chilling. Watch below. --Lauren Hansen
