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.
