"The two brothers exited, assault rifles in hand, and fired in quick succession at law enforcement officers. The members of the GIGN (Intervention Group of the National Gendarmerie) responded initially with stun grenades, which forced the two terrorists to the ground, who continued firing in quick succession at members of the GIGN who were therefore forced to neutralise them - while two members of law enforcement were lightly wounded."

"We also know that Cherif (referring to Cherif Kouachi, the elder of the two Kouachi brothers involved in the attack on Charlie Hebdo's offices) travelled to Yemen in 2011 and that he frequented terrorist jihadist individuals known to have been trained in Yemen and currently located in Yemen and in Syria."

"(Taking into account ) declarations made once again to a TV station by (Amedy) Coulibaly (who was identified as shooting a policewoman to death south of Paris) saying - and I quote "I have killed four of them" - and pending the result of the autopsy, we can suppose that none of the hostages were killed during the assault launched by law enforcement officers and that the deaths occurred at the hands of the terrorist when he entered the supermarket."

"The investigation will now focus on the hearings in order to determine how to proceed with the individuals in custody. It will also focus on arresting Amedy Coulibaly's partner, whom we haven't arrested yet. The investigation will also have to determine any complicities they may have benefited from, the financing of these criminal activities, the origin of those weapons and any help they may have benefited from in France, abroad, or also in Yemen."

Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins gave further details of the police response against the perpetrators of the Paris attacks at a news conference late on Friday.
Molins detailed the chase of the three gunmen, Cherif Kouachi, Said Kouachi and Amedy Coulibaly up until their deaths at the hands of law enforcement officers.
"The two brothers exited assault rifles in hand, spraying fire at law enforcement officers," Molins said of the two brothers, Cherif and Said Kouachi, who massacred 12 people on Wednesday at the Charlie Hebdo offices, who had taken refuge in a printing factory in Dammartin-en-Goele, northeast of Paris.
"The GIGN (elite police force) were forced to neutralise them," he said.
The prosecutor also said the four hostages found dead in a kosher supermarket near Paris' Porte de Vincennes neighbourhood where Coulibaly led a standoff on Friday were not likely to have been killed by police forces.
"(Taking into account) declarations made once again to a TV station by (Amedy) Coulibaly saying - and I quote "I have killed four of them" - and pending the result of the autopsy, we can suppose that none of the hostages were killed during the assault launched by law enforcement officers and that the deaths occurred at the hand of the terrorist when he entered the supermarket," Molins said.
Molins said the police investigation will now focus on individuals being held in custody and the hunt for Hayat Boumeddiene, the wife of Coulibaly, who is described as an accomplice in the attack on the kosher supermarket.
Authorities increasingly grew to see links between the attackers after they discovered that Boumeddiene and the companion of one of the Kouachi brothers had exchanged about 500 phone calls, Molins said.
