HOLLYWOOD, CA (Gosh!TV) 2016/7/31 – Three Days Of Terror: The Charlie Hebdo Attacks, premiere on Sept. 19th. A searing account of the Jan. 2015 terror attacks on Paris, which combined the last European attack by Al-Qaeda and the first European attack inspired by ISIS, following the militant group’s self-proclamation in June 2014. The horrific events began Jan. 7, 2015, when two brothers who were members of Al-Qaeda in Yemen stormed the Paris offices of the satiric weekly Charlie Hebdo, killing 11 people and injuring 11 others before killing a French police officer. Amidst a massive manhunt for the killers, an additional five people were murdered and 11 wounded over the next two days. Drawing on exclusive access to hostages, survivors, police, paramilitary forces and intelligence findings and evidence, as well as never-before-seen footage and photographs, Emmy nominee Dan Reed (HBO’s Terror at the Mall) highlights the courage and resilience of Parisian police and citizens in the face of mass murder.
