A video has emerged showing a car chase involving French police and the two brothers suspected of carrying out the attacks that killed 12 people at the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris on Wednesday.

The footage, which was captured on Friday morning, shows a police convoy following the suspects’ car on the N2 motorway to the north-east of Paris.

According to reports, gunfire was seen being exchanged between the car of the brothers, Said and Cherif Kouachi, and police. Police pursued the suspects for 30 miles after they reportedly hijacked a car this morning.

A police siege is now underway at the CTD printing in town of Dammartin-en-Goele, where a hostage has been taken by the brothers.
