French police trying to 'establish contact' with massacre suspects

PARIS - Elite police units are trying to establish dialogue with two suspects in the Charlie Hebdo massacre holed up in a small business outside Paris with a hostage, an interior ministry spokesman said Friday.

"The priority is to resolve this crisis in the smoothest way possible, that is without violence. The priority is to establish contact" with the suspects, Pierre-Henry Brandet told BFMTV.
