    I think there are suggestions being made that the suspect who shot the police officer yesterday is now linked to the kosher supermarket shooting.

    This is just speculation, but I wonder if it's a sympathiser/copycat trying to divert attention away from the suspects?

    It seems it is related to the lone attack the day after on the police women.

    Apparently they were three Wednesday, the two brothers went to the north - perhaps they tried to reach Belgium - whilst the third stayed in Paris, and killed the policewoman yesterday.

    They won't speak.
    Most likely not, but it's not a foregone conclusion. Let's wait and see.

    BBC are reporting that contact may have been made with the brothers, and they've expressed that "they're ready for martyrdom"

    This hostage situation won't end well. Apparently the brothers are prepared to die as martyrs, so I doubt there will be a peaceful outcome here.

    All I could find were reports of a "mysterious explosion or earthquake". I don't think it was today, and it seems unrelated,

    Takers. He was the guy who killed the policewoman yesterday.

    5 hostages in the supermarket. He has two AK47.

    The two brothers said they belong to Al Qaeda - Yemen.
