Newly released video of the Charlie Hebdo assailants shows how they forced a police car to retreat after the rampage. In the video, the two men are seen in the street, reloading their weapons. One shouts, "We have avenged the Prophet Mohammed, we have killed Charlie Hebdo," reports Sky News, while Reuters, via NBC, also hears "al-Qaeda Yemen." They get in their car and drive off, only to encounter a police car coming at them. The Kouachi brothers open fire, and the police vehicle backs away. The brothers then regroup and head straight toward the car, with one of them firing. They escaped, and the officers inside the vehicle were not injured. (The next Charlie Hebdo is out tomorrow.)
