Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Corrine Rey gave the passcode the the office building to two masked and armed terrorists who ended up killing 12 in the French satirical magazine's office today.
She's just spoken out to the press saying that she 'd was threatened into doing that. She had just returned from picking her daughter from school when she was confronted by the men who said they would kill her daughter if she doesn't give them the entry code for the building.
Corinne Rey told a French publication that she and her daughter hid under a desk and they witnessed the massacre and killing of at least two cartoonist in the same room.
"I had gone to pick up my daughter at day care, arriving in front of the magazine building, where two masked and armed men brutally threatened us. They said they wanted to go up to the offices, so I tapped in the code. ...They shot Wolinski and Cabu. It lasted five minutes. I had taken refuge under a desk."
That must have been so traumatic!
Also, the photos of the people who died and those who were injured in the attack have been released.. May their souls rest in peace.
