DAMMARTIN-EN-GOELE, France — French security forces are converging on a small town northeast of Paris, where two brothers suspect of carrying out Wednesday's terror attack on a newspaper are holed up in a printing house, possibly with a hostage.

A lawmaker inside a police command post says authorities have made contact with Cherif (sheh-REEF') and Said Kouachi (sah-EED' koo-AH'-shee), and they say they want to die as martyrs.

The location is near Charles de Gaulle airport and two runways have been closed.

The men are suspected in the attack against the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo that left 12 people dead.
