Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Corrine Rey said she let terrorists into the satirical newspaper building after they threatened the life of her toddler daughter. After the gunmen were inside, Rey hid under her desk with her little girl as the terrorists called out the names of their intended targets. Corrine Rey creates cartoons under the name "Coco."
Corrine Rey is cartoonist at Charlie Hebdo and a young Paris mother. Just prior to the terrorist gunmen, who may be members of al-Qaeda or ISIS, stormed the building entrance, Rey was returning from picking up her toddler daughter from daycare. When she got to the front door of the Charlie Hebdo building two masked gunmen quickly approached her and threatened the safety of the woman and her child.

They shot Wolinski and Cabu. It lasted five minutes. I had taken refuge under a desk."

A Paris terror attack witness who works in an office in the same building told BBC World Service, "When I arrived at the scene it was quite disturbing as you can imagine. There were several corpses on the floor." The male witness added that he had arrived at the scene of the Charlie Hebdo carnage just a few moments after the alleged al-Qaeda terrorists had left the offices.
The witness reportedly attempted to "make some room" for the wounded found inside the Paris satirical newspaper office. "As we progressed through the rooms, we saw there were a lot of people down on the floor and there was blood everywhere. We're extremely relieved that nobody was affected by the attacks in my own office. But obviously I'm very traumatized by this attack and everything and now we're in psychological h**l we're being attended to by professionals," the witness added.
After 2012 attack, #CharlieHebdo editor said: "I'd rather die standing than live on my knees." http://t.co/2xNLgoKrXy pic.twitter.com/8HoLLo438rWitnesses outside the building told reporters that they saw the gunmen "firing indiscriminately" along the street in front of the Charlie Hebdo building. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the Paris terror attack gunmen shot a police officer and then fled the scene in a black Citroen – which reportedly crashed shortly thereafter. Charlie Hebdo was attacked with a fire bomb in 2011.

Do you think al-Qaeda is responsible for the Charlie Hebdo Paris terror attack?
