(Snip) The two brothers suspected in the newspaper slayings were cornered by police Friday inside a printing house in the small industrial town of Dammartin-en-Goele. One lawmaker said they told negotiators they "want to die as martyrs." Hours later, a gunman seized an unknown number of hostages at a kosher market in eastern Paris, France's anti-terrorism prosecutor said. A police official, who was not authorized to speak to the media about the events, told The Associated Press the man who has taken five people hostage in a kosher market appears linked to the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
