PARIS (AP) - France's interior minister says security forces are hunting for three gunmen who stormed the offices of a satirical newspaper in Paris, killing 12 people.

Minister Bernard Cazeneuve promised to give the people of France the highest level of protection after the attack on the weekly paper Charlie Hebdo. The gunmen killed its editor and at least one cartoonist as well as two police officers guarding the paper.

The French president has called the shootings a terrorist attack "without a doubt."

The gunmen escaped in a waiting car, according to video filmed by witnesses.
