PARIS. KAZINFORM - The youngest of three suspects in the deadly attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has surrendered, Agence-France Presse said, citing sources it didn't identify.

French police released pictures of two brothers still wanted over the shooting assault, according to the news agency. Earlier, AFP reported that anti-terror forces raided a site in the northeastern city of Reims -- about 90 miles from Paris -- in their hunt for those who carried out the attack. The brothers were identified as Said and Cherif Kaouchi, aged 34 and 32 respectively, AFP said. The third accomplice was Hamyd Mourad, 18, Le Point magazine said. The police didn't comment when contacted by Bloomberg. At least 12 people were killed at the weekly Charlie Hebdo office in eastern Paris, prompting France to deploy thousands of police to protect train stations, airports, schools and cultural sites. The tragedy spurred tens of thousands to rally in support at sites round the world, with leaders from Muslim nations and organizations joining in condemning the attack. "All the elements of this investigation would be made public as soon we have precise and final elements," Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said yesterday. Highest Alert The country was put on the highest terrorist alert after one of its deadliest attacks since World War II, with protection extended to places of worship and media outlets. The assault was carried out by two masked men brandishing AK-47 Kalashnikov rifles, with at least one shouting "Allahu Akbar," or "God is great" in Arabic. It left 11 people injured, with four of them in critical condition. Police have identified all three suspects, France's Ambassador to Australia, Christophe Lecourtier, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
