Here are photos of some of the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack that took place in Paris this afternoon. The terror attack was carried out by two gunmen carrying AK-47s and grenades. The attackers were reportedly heard chanting  ‘the Prophet has been avenged’ as they brutally execute 12 people and injure 10 at the office of a French satirical magazine they claimed made a mockery of Holy Prophet Mohammed with its cartoon.
