2015 – Charlie Hebdo Shooting
On January 7th, 2015, two Islamist brothers killed eleven and wounded several people in the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo (a satirical magazine). During this time, other coordinated attacks were happening around Paris. The two gunmen escaped, and were later killed in a siege. This incident has caused an increased search for related terrorists in France, Belgium and other neighboring countries.
