FRANCE: The police organized an enormous manhunt across the Paris region on Wednesday for three suspects they said were involved in a brazen and methodical midday slaughter at a satirical newspaper that had lampooned Islam. The terrorist attack by masked gunmen on the newspaper, Charlie Hebdo, left 12 people dead — including the top editor, prominent cartoonists and police officers — and was among the deadliest in postwar France. Officials said late Wednesday that the suspects had been identified and that two were brothers. One of the police officials said they were linked to a Yemeni terrorist network, and Cedric Le Bechec, a witness who encountered the escaping gunmen, quoted the attackers as saying: "You can tell the media that it's al-Qaida in Yemen."Other sources report both returned from Syria this summer.  Many news outlets shied away from publishing the controversial images of the paper's satirical cartoons of Mohammed.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies topped the chart with 21.9 million.  This final installment has topped the chart for every day of its release, except for Christmas.  It is tracking about where the prior Hobbit flicks have been, but lower than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  Into The Woods places with 19 million, again edging out Unbroken, which shows with 18.4 million. Both of these had budgets in the 50-65 million range and should turn a tidy profit once they run overseas.  The Woman in Black 2: The Angel of Death takes the fourth slot with a much-stronger-than-expected 15.1 million debut (gurus projected 9-11 million).  As such it's likely to profit on a presumably low budget (the original cost only 15 million and included Daniel radcliffe in the cast).  Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb rounds out the Top Five with 14.5 million, which means the film may not reach profitability in theaters, but probably not too big a loss before heading to the home market.
