Twelve people were killed in the attack on Charlie Hebdo's office on Wednesday, including its editor-in-chief and leading cartoonists

Two brothers suspected of killing 12 people in an attack at the offices of satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo were killed Friday by French commandos who launched an assault at a printing firm where they were holed up with a hostage

Brothers Cherif Kouachi, 32, and Said Kouachi, 34, were killed, said Audrey Taupenas, spokesperson for the town near the Charles de Gaulle airport.

French Culture Minister Fleur Pellerin said the government was ready to grant the struggling newspaper one million euros ($1.18 million) "so it can continue next week and the week after that and the week after that".

Paris made the Charlie Hebdo journal an honorary citizen and the creator of Asterix offered to draw for it on Friday as support poured in for the satirical weekly decimated by Islamist gunmen for mocking Prophet Mohammad.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo told a city council session that honorary citizenship of the capital was seldom given and had in the past "distinguished great resistance fighters against dictatorship and barbarism.

"By choosing to grant it to Charlie Hebdo, Paris - our city - shows a heroic newspaper the respect due to heroes," she said. The city's official homepage carried a black sign declaring "Paris est Charlie" ("Paris is Charlie").
